July 29, Most SGML software applications, e. This means all end-tags should be provided with the exception of those element types having EMPTY declared content such as "colspec", "spanspec", etc. Their start-tags must not be followed by any content or end-tags. Also all attribute values needed by the application should be specified on their tags, otherwise a needed but unspecified attribute default value may not be available for the application's processing.
An instance can be normalized in one of two ways:. The use of normalizing software is recommended as being the most efficient and cost-effective. Much of the content of PMS documents consists of enumerated items, i. The enumeration scheme for these lists and their sublists is: "1. The value of the "numstyle" attribute on the "seqlist" tag is chosen so as to provide the same enumeration used in the PMS document files as follows:.
In addition, there is a no list enumeration option corresponding to the "numstyle" attribute value of "none". NOTE : According to the PMS DTD, the "numstyle" attribute may also take the values of "romanlc" lower-case roman , "romanuc" upper-case roman , and "alphauc" upper-case alphabetic in addition to the above values.
NOTE : The "label" attributes should not be specified on the "item" tags since the enumeration of sequential lists is automatically generated by the application software. However, the "numstyle" attribute must always be specified on the "seqlist" tag. The "emphasis" tag is to be used only for author discretionary emphasized text.
These are the so-called work sheets, checkoff lists, etc. Finally, there are implicit tables "embedded" in the text. These tables may not have titles and often do not have column headings. Their table bodies usually consist of a small number of rows.
See item Special characters are those characters which in some contexts could have an SGML delimiter significance and could cause parsing problems or which can not be entered from the keyboard. The following tagging conventions apply to the tagging of the so-called "special paragraphs", i. A special paragraph always stands alone. This means the markup of a special paragraph is not absorbed into the preceding or following element content e.
The placement of special paragraph markups in PMS document instances will be crucial for future database applications. The "date" general entity will be referenced to provide both the document's date of issue and date of distribution. A standard distribution statement is provided by referencing one of the standard distribution general entities "distriba", distribb", etc. The replacement text of these entities consists of the "distrib" start-tag, the text of the distribution statement, and the "distrib" end-tag.
However, the text of a non-standard distribution statement may be entered directly between the "distrib" start-tag be sure to specify the value of the "type" attribute and the "distrib" end-tag in the PMS document instance. Such material is to be tagged in terms of the corresponding element types. A corresponding " " symbol would occur in entries of the Related Maintenance column.
These eight symbols are to be tagged as footnote references and the corresponding texts as footnote texts. General entity references to facilitate this tagging are provided in the standard texts entity file accompanying the PMS DTD file. The material in the note will be added to the appropriate element content, and the note will be removed. Such anomalies may be one of the following. Take the first word of the "topic" content and append the digit "1" to it.
If there is a second topic, take the first word of that "topic" content and append the digit "2" to it. Proceed in like manner for any additional topics. These "idref" values will be the values of the "id" attribute on the "title" tags of the sequential lists for each of the procedural steps following the preliminary steps in the "procblk" content corresponding to these topics.
NOTE : In the event that the first character of the first word of any of the "topic" contents is a digit "0", "1", If the first word of any of the "topic" contents contains characters other than ". NOTE : The text of certain very general safety precautions will not occur in a corresponding warning.
Usually this cross-referencing is tagged in terms of the "xref" element as follows. For example, the citation. NOTE : Such cross-references may be implicit as in the text "the procedures in steps 12 through 16". The "12" and "16" are to be cross-referenced to the "item" tags containing these steps. Any alphabetic characters appended to or following a SWAB group number are to be discarded and not entered into "swabgrp" content. Any integers in the fifth or sixth places from the left are likewise discarded.
Multiple SWAB group numbers may occur separated by a comma or a space. However, there is one exception: graphics without titles are allowed in the markup of mathematical notation. In the event that a graphic without a figure occurs in a PMS document, see if the surrounding material would be tagged as mathematical notation. If this is not the case, refer the matter to FTSC for their consideration. Tables can occur in the following situations:. Tables can NOT occur in the following situations:.
Any such table which seems to occur where it should not must to be referred to FTSC for their consideration. Skip to main content Press Enter. July 29, 1. An instance can be normalized in one of two ways: When the instance is being prepared, include all end-tags except for those element types with EMPTY declared value.
Also be sure to specify all attribute values that could be needed by the software application on the appropriate tags even though these attribute values may be their attributes' default values. Some SGML parsers have the output option of providing a parseable normalized instance. On the "table" tag, provide appropriate values for the "frame", "colsep", "rowsep", "orient", and "pgwide" attributes.
On the "tgroup" tag, specify the "cols" attribute value as the number of columns in this table group. Use the "align" attribute to specify the alignment of the columns in this table group as "left", "center", or "right" do not use the "justify" or "char" values.
If the row and column separations for the columns of this table group differ from those specified on the "table" tag, the "rowsep" and "colsep" attributes can be re-defined for the columns in this table group either on the "tgroup" tag or on their "colspec" tags see below. The "charoff" and "char" attributes are not used in the PMS application.
Always specify the "colname" attribute as "1", "2", "3", etc. Do not confuse the "colname" attribute with the "colnum" attribute which you do not specify on the "colspec" tag.
For a "portrait" oriented table, the sum of the "colwidth" attribute values in a table group should not exceed Likewise the sum of the "colwidth" values should not exceed for a "landscape" oriented table.
Do not specify the "colnum", "charoff", or "char" attributes on the "colsep" tag. On the "spanspec" tags if any , specify the values of the "namest" and "nameend" attributes as the values of the "colname" attributes of the leftmost and rightmost columns of the span.
Specify the value of the "spanname" attribute as these two values joined with a dash "-" , e. Specify the "align" attribute value as "center", "right", or "left" as the situation warrants. Do not specify the "justify" or "char" values for the "align" attribute. Also specify appropriate values for the "colsep" and "rowsep" attributes. Do not specify the "charoff" or "char" attributes on the "spanspec" tag. The "spanspec" and "namest"-"nameend" attributes of "entry" seem to work equally well.
Do not specify the "valign" attribute on any of the tags. Do not use the "tfoot" tag. Do not use the "entrytbl" tag in table bodies. Do not specify the "rotate", "valign", "charoff", or "char" attributes on the "entry" tag. If the table rows are enumerated, the enumeration is to be considered a column in its own right and tagged accordingly.
Very rarely it will be found that a large table has been split up into two tables, e. Since such page space limitations do not apply to screen displays, such tables are to be combined.
At present, the "chart" element type is not used to tag tabular material in the PMS application. Only notes can occur in MIP documents. It is assumed that a note in a MIP always pertains to the material preceding it. On the other hand it is assumed that a special paragraph in an MRC always pertains to the material following it. MIP Considerations 9. A note occurs immediately before or after the "Scheduling Aid s " section.
The content of the note is to be entered as an item in the "Scheduling Aid s " section with the following exception. If a note immediately follows i. However, if a note is separated from the last "Scheduling Aid s " item by one or more blank lines, then that note is converted into a new last "Scheduling Aid s " item. The text of any such note is to be placed in the content of the appropriate element.
The content of the note is to be entered as an item of a "Scheduling Aid s " section. The markup of any such note is to be placed in the content of the appropriate element. The standard text corresponding to this symbol is to be provided by referencing the appropriate general entity declared in the standard text file in "legend" content.
