Schematron Question: proper way to express the text version of assertion
Hi Folks, Consider this simple XML document: <Meeting> <StartTime>0900</StartTime> <EndTime>1000</EndTime> </Meeting> With Schematron I can express this data constraint: "The Meeting's EndTime must be after its StartTime" This is expressed using a Schematron rule: <sch:rule context="Meeting"> <sch:assert test="EndTime > StartTime"> -- text version of assertion -- </sch:assert> </sch:rule> Read as: "In the context of the Meeting element, I assert that the value of EndTime must be greater than the value of StartTime" Question: Within the <sch:assert> element you can provide a textual description of the assertion (which I indicate above using "-- text version of assertion --"). What is the best way of stating the text version of an assertion: "is", "should be", or "must be"? For the above example, which of these is best: (a) EndTime is greater than StartTime (b) EndTime should be greater than StartTime (c) EndTime must be greater than StartTime Or perhaps something else? What is recommended? /Roger
