Subject RE: Standards for representing dates?
Date Fri, 27 Oct 2000 16:09:45 GMT
Thanks, but what I'm looking for isn't nearly as technical as this.
Here's what I would like:
rather than inventing

<my_namespace:date>
	<my_namespace:year/>
	<my_namespace:month/>
	<my_namespace:day/>
	...etc.
</my_namespace:date>

or whatever
I would like to use some standardized thing
like 
<iso:date> or <w3c:date> or whatever it would be.  Surely such a thing must
exist somewhere.

Dates and times are normally dealt with within a single data item and DTDs
don't really address that. I suggest you look at the XML schema section on
dates
	http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/#isoformats
or the ISO8601 standard on which it is based
	http://www.iso.ch/markete/8601.pdf (ugly scanned copy of paper
document)
either of these will cover the internet standard way of handling date and
time representations.

Are there any standard or quasi-standard low-level DTDs that deal with
representing dates and times?
I have to include some of this data in a DTD I am developing and reinventing
this particular wheel seems
like a very bad idea.
