Is there a single word for something that is subject to a decoration? Is it something like "decoree"?
EDIT: I want to give an explanation what I need this word for. I am currently developing a software that among other things renders text. Just think of something like LaTeX. Everything that is visible on screen is called a Box. These boxes can be "decorated" by adding accents, over- or underlines etc. Now I need variable names for the box that is decorated as well as the "subject" of the decoration. Because I have loads of these boxes, box is too ambiguous. I thought of "decoree" just as we call a program being debugged the debuggee. As I am not a native speaker, I was just wondering if there's a word that describes what I mean and doesn't sound weird to a native speaker who later reads my code.
