A component is an instantiation of one of the Tridion (XML) schemas. It is a piece of XML which can be validated against the XML Schema that was created for the specified content type. It contains both content and metadata fields. Useful GUI functions include:
- Versioning makes it possible to revert to a previous version or to compare two different versions.
- ‘Where used’ which shows a list of other Tridion items using this component
