This element is a form item. It contains executable content that is executed if the block's form item variable is undefined and the block's cond attribute, if any, evaluates to true.
|name||The name of the form item variable used to track whether this block is eligible to be executed; defaults to an inaccessible internal variable.|
|cond||An expression that must evaluate to true after conversion to Boolean in order for the form item to be visited.|
|expr||The initial value of the form item variable; default is ECMAScript undefined. If initialized to a value, then the block will not be visited unless the form item variable is cleared.|
