MO:DCA (A Document Data Stream Interchange Architecture) provides within its document structure the capability for index elements to reference processing environment specifications that are defined elsewhere in the document. These specifications come in two forms: 1. Environment specifications that are entirely contained within MO:DCA's Master/Active/Object Environment Groups. 2. Environment specifications that are contained within a nesting index element which must be processed to calculate environment parameters affecting the environment for a nested indexed element. For example, a text 2B font control embedded in a nesting text object that is to be inherited in a nested data object.
