Class TextSyntax is an abstract base class providing the common implementation of all attributes whose value is a string. The text attribute includes a locale to indicate the natural language. Thus, a text attribute always represents a localized string. Once constructed, a text attribute's value is immutable.

 protected TextSyntax(String value,
    Locale locale) 
    Constructs a TextAttribute with the specified string and locale.
    value - Text string.
    locale - Natural language of the text string. null is interpreted to mean the default locale for as returned by Locale.getDefault()
    NullPointerException - (unchecked exception) Thrown if value is null.
    exception: NullPointerException - (unchecked exception) Thrown if value is null.

Method from javax.print.attribute.TextSyntax Detail:
 public boolean equals(Object object) 
    Returns whether this text attribute is equivalent to the passed in object. To be equivalent, all of the following conditions must be true:
    1. object is not null.
    2. object is an instance of class TextSyntax.
    3. This text attribute's underlying string and object's underlying string are equal.
    4. This text attribute's locale and object's locale are equal.
 public Locale getLocale() 
    Returns this text attribute's text string's natural language (locale).
 public String getValue() 
    Returns this text attribute's text string.
 public int hashCode() 
    Returns a hashcode for this text attribute.
 public String toString() 
    Returns a String identifying this text attribute. The String is the attribute's underlying text string.
