Subject: RE: [docbook-publishers] article/@class Additions?
Hi, I'd suggest that "journalarticle" is an article in a journal. If we want to include "or other periodical" then the attribute name should not include the "journal" part, but should be plain "article". A published academic article always belongs to a journal (though it might be an online-only Journal) and I think that the element (I assume it is such and not an attribute) will carry the publication type ("journal" "whitepaper" etc). It seems to me that the list below confuses types of article with types of publication. White papers are usually stand-alone and cited purely by title, whereas journal articles are cited by article title, page, journal title, volume and issue. I would have to say that, to me, none of the enumerated article values other than "journalarticle" are semantically articles at all. Has anyone looked at the ISO 12083 Article DTD?

Hi, I'd like to open the floor for a discussion of additional values we'll need to add to the @class attribute of <article> to properly markup the documents produced by our target publishers. The current list is:  """ class Identifies the nature of the article Enumerated values: "faq" A collection of frequently asked questions. "journalarticle" An article in a journal or other periodical. "productsheet" A description of a product. "specification" A specification. "techreport" A technical report. "whitepaper" A white paper. """ My take is that "journalarticle"'s definition is too broad. Thanks, Keith 1. I couldn't find an earlier discussion in the minutes. 2. http://www.docbook.org/tdg5/en/html/article.html#attribute-descriptions --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe from this mail list, you must leave the OASIS TC that generates this mail.
