Signifies whether to the text label should be interpreted chemically (if possible).

This attribute indicates whether the given caption or atom label should be interpreted chemically if at all possible. This allows for a distinction between a "C" that represents elemental carbon and a "C" that indicates the third item in a list starting with "A" and "B".

Note the "if at all possible" qualification. Wholly uninterpretable text like "wqertsrtrst" or "Fred" or "Boiling Point" will never be treated as chemically meaningful, regardless of the value of this property.
