These classes and methods facilitate navigation of the Affymetrix DTT sample attribute files. DTT files are generated by the Affymetrix GCOS application. Specifically, the classes are R representations of the Affymetrix classes defined in MAGE-ML.dtd. The 'show' methods for these classs indicate how objects are to be accessed; details are in the `Retrieving MAGE and ARR sample attributes' vignette.

[[. A useful paradigm for displaying all instances is illustrated in the vignette.
