Attribute domain coding requirements

Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Version 1.2

Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Version 1.2

An attribute domain must consist of one file, whose name consists of the module name plus Domain plus the xsd extension. For example: newAttDomain.xsd for an attribute named "new". The file must have a single attribute group definition that contains the definition of the attribute itself, where the attribute group is named attnameAtt-d-attribute.

For example, for an attribute named "new":
<xs:attributeGroup name="newAtt-d-attribute">
  <xs:attribute name="new" type="xs:string"/>

The attribute domain must be reflected in a shell document type XSD that integrates it. See Domain usage declaration (the @domains attribute) for details of attribute domain @domains values.

For example, if the attribute named "new" is a specialization of the @props attribute, the @domains value would be "a(props new)".
