Subject: Re: [lexidma] Examples and document models for OASIS and ISO styles

Thanks, Chet

We decided in the last meeting to go with the OASIS vanilla style including the IETF BCP 14 keywords.

WRT the document model for DMLex VersionÂ1, we're indeed only now getting to starting the working draft after some key design principles discussions..

Should I log a new ticket for the fresh starter document? Or should we reopen the original one?

Cheers and thanks

Hi David,Â

Catching up on my email backlog and just got to this. If you requested the template in January and haven't used it yet, you might want to consider getting a new copy. We've made some changes to make the transition to ISO style a bit less heavy lifting. Also....Â

The most importantÂhallmark of the OASIS Style is the IETF BCP 14 style normative keywords
See e.g. this usage in the DITA 1.3 specification
You can choose to use the ISO keywords. The TAB wrote a (somewhat out of date) comparison of the two styles. SeeÂhttps://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/keyword-guidelines/. Just declare in the document which you are using to manage expectations. In the last few OASIS Standards we've had to update to ISO style, indeed, the key word difference has been a lot of work.ÂÂ
Also in the ISO style, they are more strict as to organization of the material between front matter and clauses. Some of the stuff that is numbered in OASIS either doesn't exist in the ISO Model or goes unnumbered as part of ISO front matter. ISO standards must start with 1 Scope, 2 Normative references, and 3 Terms and definitions, then goes 4 acronyms and abbreviations and only then the material provisions of the specification can start. ISO also prohibits "hanging paragraphs" that are possible in OASIS and few other minor points.
If you want to match that organization in your draft, that's fine by us. Again, part of our reorg of the template was to make that easier to follow.Â
You can check some of the examples of standards written in ISO style here
For instance the DSDL multipartÂseries (search for DSDL on the above location) for instance the RelaxNG standard that originates in OASIS but had been transformed to ISO house style as it is being maintained by the ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 34.

While OASIS doesn't care which English spelling we use, we mandated UK spelling which is enforced by ISO house style, so we are good here..

I hope this will help us to decide for the right format and style next week
