All Superinterfaces:
BaseNode, FormalNameNode

public interface NewsItemId
extends BaseNode, FormalNameNode

A news item identifier.

A news item identifier is similar to a regular FormalName, but it does not contain the local Duid or Euid identifiers. It is also similar to a ProviderId, except that it can have a locally-specified scheme. See FormalName for details on vocabulary resolution.
