The tag NotationBoxTag

NotationBoxTag is a tag used by the Notation package to grab box structures before they can be parsed by Mathematica. In fact NotationBoxTag acts rather like the tag literalBoxes defined above. All Notation , Symbolize and InfixNotation templates on the notation palette contain tag boxes with an embedded NotationBoxTag. The embedded TagBox ensures that the Notation package can obtain the correct parsing information and retain the proper styling and grouping information.

An expression containing an embedded NotationBoxTag tag.

We can avoid using notation templates if we wrap raw box structures with a NotationBoxTag.
