This is an SGML Document Access (SDA) attribute. SDA attributes are designed to transform HTML (and other SGML-based documents) to the ICADD DTD - which is used in creating accessible documents for users with visual disabilities (rendering in Braille, large print, speech synthesis, etc.) The attribute value specifies the name of the element to convert this element to in the SDA element group (in this case the 'B' element - "bold emphasized text".)
Value: B (Denotes 'bold emphasized text' in SDA.)
