Important ones go to the top or whatever order you please.


Here's my suggestion for conventions on articles starting with Identifying, but I'm too tired to evaluate if I should post this to the "normative" page. Juxo 01:23 Jun 12, 2003 (EEST)

  • Identifying - Articles that start with word "Identifying" followed by a Consumerium Concept are supposed to fullfill the following requirements:
    • They are to be thought to be normative for XML developers (optimally describing one element)
    • They describe the attribute(s) used to make this element uniquely identified. In some situations there might be multiple alternative/complimenting identification schemes to achieve interoperability, with other systems eg. Countries could be identified by TLD or ISO-3166-1
    • They include at least one way of obtaining this unique key or several parallel ways when possible. Suggestions for source of reference should be included
    • They describe the pragmatic, moral, technological and economical considerations for the chosen identification method
    • They might describe the contained elements and attributes (ie. the content of the element)
