a text node
A text unit is a 4-way relationship between text units:
(unit, parent, role, type)
role of a unit as child
type of a unit
Every unit instantiates a type, which is another unit. That means that the unit is a particular occurrence of the type, that is seen as a model or pattern. A unit inherits its behavior from its type unit.
