Example text

The original method of identification was to use a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) reference, which can be a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) that may be familiar from HTML links, or a URN (Uniform Resource Name). w3. org/1999/xhtml, as indicated in the XHTML specification. In the new version of the XML Names specification, the identification mechanism was extended to Internationalized Resource Identifier (IRI) references [13]. Whereas a URI is a string of characters chosen from a subset of US-ASCII characters, an IRI extends URIs to a wider set of characters so that they can be used in the context of various natural languages.

Furthermore, people can use a natural language long before they learn to articulate its rules. XML documents very often include parts written in a natural language, but XML itself and the XML-based markup languages are formal languages, defined by formal grammars. A formal language is a set of character strings for which the characters are taken from a given alphabet and concatenated into strings according to exact rules. The language consisting of all positive numbers (that is, strings of digits, such as 301992, 7, and 4124) is an example of a formal language: we can define exact rules for testing whether or not a string belongs to the language.

In the example, the value of the attribute xml:lang is to be taken from an enumerated list (either the string “fi” or the string “en”), and the value of the attribute author is a character string (CDATA). The repeated keyword #IMPLIED indicates that either or both of the attributes can be given in the start-tag of a rhyme element, but neither of them is mandatory (and any application must infer a missing attribute’s value from context). Structure. The root element of the document is of type rhymecollection.
