Notes to Inheritors

When you inherit from the PageAdapter class, you can override TransformText if a particular markup has a construct with a different form from standard HTML. For example, if a browser requires a different identifier for a tag than what would be used in HTML, TransformText method can be overridden to find that tag and change it.
