Subject RE: Standards for representing dates?
Date Fri, 27 Oct 2000 15:56:33 GMT
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
or the ISO8601 standard on which it is based
	http://www.iso.ch/markete/8601.pdf (ugly scanned copy of paper
either of these will cover the internet standard way of handling date and
time representations.

Subject: Standards for representing dates?

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.
