Technical content domains
This section contains information about the technical content domains, including a general overview and more specific information about the xNAL, release management, equation, and MathML domains.
In this section:
- The xNAL domainThe DITA xNAL domain specialization defines a number of metadata elements and attributes that are useful in representing personal/organizational names and addresses. The metadata can be used to identify authors and content owners. The OASIS xNAL Standard (extensible Name and Address Langauge) was selected to represent close mappings from the DITA bookmap metadata content model to an existing standard. xNAL is included in the Bookmap and the LearningBookmap document types.
- xNAL usage guidelinesExtended information and usage examples for DITA bookmap metadata elements associated with OASIS xNAL Standard (extensible Name and Address Language).
- MathML and equation domainsThe MathML and equation domains provide general containers for equations (inline, block, and display) and an integration with the MathML standard. The equation containers identify equations separate from the data that provides the equation content, which might take many forms, including MathML markup, images, and non-XML formats like TeX and ASCII equations.
- Release management domainThe release management domain provides markup that enables content developers to log information about changes that have been made to a DITA topic or map. This information can be used to generate release notes, which can help users locate significant changes in revisions of large documents.
