PaceSyntaxGuidelines


Abstract

[AsbjornUlsberg] Try to define a naming principle for the Atom syntax. This supersedes the SyntaxGuidelines with a concrete specification proposal. All future updates of the SyntaxGuidelines will happen here.

Status

Open.

Rationale

This pace tries to define some simple syntax guidelines, which should apply to the Atom format -- both existing and future extensions of it. Except where explicitly stated otherwise, all examples provided are fictional: the elements and attributes given, may or may not exist in the Atom Format syntax.

Proposal

Replace (the currently empty) [WWW]section 7 with the following:

Impacts

This impacts how new Atom elements, attributes or enumerated values are syntactically constructed. It may also impact the current specification if it consists of anything breaking these guidelines. The current finding is that the [WWW]atom:url element and [WWW]title attribute breaks these guidelines to some extent.
