    2629 '''<component><mesh>''':: 
    2730   The name of the mesh element. The mesh is a separate [wiki:rp_xml_ele_mesh <mesh>] object.  
     31 '''<component><association>''':: 
     32   The association of the field values to the mesh: 'pointdata' or 'celldata'.  Defaults to 'pointdata'. 
     33 '''<component><elemtype>''':: 
     34   The type of field: 'colorscalars', 'normals', 'scalars', 'tcoords', 'tensors', 'vectors'.  Defaults to 'scalars'. 
     35 '''<component><elemsize>''':: 
     36   The number of components in each field value tuple.  For example, a field of 3D vectors would have an elemsize of 3.  The default is 1 which corresponds with the default <elemtype> of 'scalars'. 
    2837 '''<component><values>''':: 
    29    The values of the field. The number of values must match the number of points of the mesh.  
     38   The values of the field. Each value is a tuple of one or more numbers.  The number of tuples must match the number of points (for <association> of 'pointdata') or number of cells (for 'celldata') of the mesh, and the total number of values = (number of points or cells * elemsize).
