Handle to the PDE container object. A container is a group of elements on a page in a PDF file. In the PDF file, containers are delimited by Marked Content BMC/EMC or BDC/EMC pairs. Every container has a Marked Content tag associated with it. In addition to grouping a set of elements, a BDC/EMC pair specifies a property list to be associated with the grouping. Thus a container corresponding to a BDC/EMC pair also has a property list dictionary associated with it.

See Section 10.5 in the PDF reference for more information about Marked Content operators.
