XSchema Spec Section 2.6, Draft 1
Here's the first - very rough - draft of section 2.6. I've pondered this area over and over, and haven't been able to come up with any better ideas. I'd like to see section 2.6.2 contain a much clearer description of the kind of content that is acceptable, as well as a description of how this information is passed to the application. (The passing part should probably wait for section 5.0.) All suggestions are extremely welcome. As always, a prettier HTML version of this will be posted shortly at http://purl.oclc.org/NET/xschema. Simon St.Laurent Dynamic HTML: A Primer / XML: A Primer / Cookies 2.6 XSchema Extensions XSchema provides areas in which XSchema developers can provide supplemental information and metadata regarding XSchema components in both human- and machine-readable formats. Human-readable information is provided through the use of a subset of HTML that conforms to XML syntax, while machine-readable information may be provided through the XSC:More element. 2.6.1 Documentation Extensions Human-readable documentation for XSchemas should be provided using the Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Simple Hypertext format created by John Cowan. The full DTD is available at http://www.ccil.org/~cowan/XML/ibtwsh.dtd. Documentation that uses portions of the IBTWSH format may be included in the XSC:Doc element, a subelement available to all declarations. The XSC:Doc element provides basic formatting options for XSchema documentation. <!ENTITY % ibtwsh SYSTEM "http://www.ccil.org/~cowan/XML/ibtwsh.dtd"> %ibtwsh; <!ELEMENT XSC:Doc %horiz.model;> Any element allowed in the horiz.model set of elements (A, BR, SPAN, XML, CITE, CODE, DFN, EM, KBD, SAMP, STRONG, VAR, FONT, or parsed character data) may be used in the XSC:Doc element. ***- John - Any thoughts on namespaces for IBTWSH? Any connections to style sheets, or should that be PIs like XML? 2.6.2 Other Extensions The XSC:More element (coming soon to all elements that include XSC:Doc) provides an area which developers can use to create their own supplements to XSchema, defining content types more tightly than is possible through XSchema 1.0. The XSC: More element has a simple ANY content model, though XSchema processors should prohibit the appearance of any elements from the XSchema namespace in this area. <!ELEMENT XSC:More ANY;> xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
