Interface FormalNameDecl

All Superinterfaces:
BaseNode, IdNode, IdText, Text

public interface FormalNameDecl
extends IdText

The declaration of a local name and scheme for a topic.

When a TopicSet represents a vocabulary, this element can declare a local name (the value of this text node) and optional scheme for a topic. Note that in the NewsML XML markup, the element is named simply "FormalName". The combination of local name and scheme will be unique among all topics in the topic set.

Note that a single topic may have zero or more formal names declared.
