Subject: Re: [dita] Element names in proposed "XML mention" domain

I agree with Scott here; every time I see parment, I start to read it as "parmesan." Go figure.

Tom, posting to the TC list is certainly what I had in mind, not dita-users.

Re: [dita] Element names in proposed "XML mention" domain The only one I am not very fond of is parment. I think a slight change to parament or paramentity would be more usable. From the core spec, I’ve not liked parml for the same reason.

Thanks and best regards,

    Hi all,

    I raised a question on today's TC call about the element names in
    Eliot's 1.3 proposal #13035: Provide "xml mention" domain for
    marking up
    mentions of XML syntactic components


    The names of the element types are based on the XML spec and/or chosen
    to be as concise as is reasonable. I'm only worried that they look a
    little too geeky for authors to use. The counterpoint is that anyone
    familiar enough with XML to be using these element types at all is
    probably geeky enough to understand them.

    I'm just wondering if there are any alternative names that might be a
    little more recognizable and/or understandable to a typical tech
    one of which I am not. Does anyone have any thoughts on the matter?

    Or should I send this question to the [dita-users] list? (I don't
    people would be able to read the proposal without logging into
    OASIS ...
    would they?)
