Specifies the location where any child elements of the bound element are placed in the generated content.

Normally, if the element bound to has its own content, the anonymous content is not generated. However, with a children element, you can merge the content from the XUL element and the XBL content.

If the children tag contains content itself, that content will become the default content. If the element the binding is attached to contains content, the default content will be ignored. If the element does not contain content, the default content will be added.
