mutually exclusive attribute group
a set of items where only one item can be selected at a time, such as a group of radio buttons. An example would be a menu with font sizes, where a given letter can only have one font size, so if another size is chosen, the formerly selected size is deselected. This is in contrast to an accumulating attribute group (such as a group of checkboxes), where multiple items can be chosen.
