Definition of terms

Note:

  • Each term (element or attribute) is listed by its XPath in the XML file. The cs: prefix refers to the xmlns namespace attribute listed in the XML header.
  • Elements are shown below sorted by their XPath. In the XML file, the order of elements is defined by the XML Schema. An example is given in the file: cansas1d-template.xml
  • Each term in the standard is shown with a comment embedded.
  • The comment indicates
    • the name of the element,
    • how many times the element can be used,
      • [0..1] : element is optional but can only appear once within enclosing element
      • [1..1] : element is required and can only appear once within enclosing element
      • [1..inf] : element is required but can appear as many times as needed within enclosing element
      • [0..inf] : element is optional and can appear as many times as needed within enclosing element
      • [] : element is optional, number of appearances within enclosing element is not specified
    • and a short description.
  • When shown in the template below with the "/@unit" XPath, the "unit" attribute is required.
