Defining information texts
To define any type of non-question text, type the following statement in the metadata section of the interview script:
Name "Text" info;
The name of the information item.
The text to be displayed.
You might define the interview page title as:
SurveyTitle "<b>Training Course Review Survey</b>" info;
or provide the following respondent information on the first page of the questionnaire:
RespInfo "Thank you for agreeing to take part in our survey.
  When navigating through the questionnaire, please do not use
  your Browser's Back and Forward buttons. Always use the Next
  and Previous buttons displayed at the bottom of the
  questionnaire page." info;
The info keyword is optional because any statement in the metadata section that does not contain a scripting keyword is assumed to be an information item. Nevertheless, it is a good idea to include the info keyword because it makes your intentions obvious to other users.
If you have a simple information text that you want to display by itself on a single page, place the following statement in the routing section at the point you want the text displayed:
where Name is the name of the info item.
This is ideal when you want to be sure that the respondent or interviewer reads the text before continuing. For example, typing:
displays the text on a page with navigation buttons, in the same way as a question is displayed. For anything other than this, such as displaying a page title at the top of each page, or displaying explanatory text above a question, define the text using an info item and then use the Banner property in the routing section to display the text (see Banners).
Only text that is part of an information or question item can be translated. If the interview script contains any other text that you want to be able to translate, define it in information items but do not add .Show or .Banner statements to the routing section for the ones you do not want to display.
