The DEFINE element creates a "temporary" field, i.e. a field which is not saved in an ".EE" field definitions file. Elements usually inherit their default settings from the attributes of their containing element. When a GROUP is INCLUDEd within another GROUP, however, only ROTATE, X and Y attribute values are inherited. Other attribute values may, in effect, be propagated to an included group by defining a temporary field to provide a value for the included group.
