Used to produce an HTML description of an object; typically a table is rendered, and the object's properties are displayed in successive rows of the table. In some cases, a property may be described recursively. Simple objects may be described as strings. The behavior behind this is extensible, defined in terms of contributions to the tapestry.describe.DescribableStrategies configuration point.

This component is used internally by Tapestry as part of the default Exception page.
