<doc-ident> ISO-Specific Document Identification Section

The ISO-specific element <doc-ident> container element holds information which uniquely identifies this standards document for ISO purposes. Non-ISO organizations are advised to use elements directly within <std-meta> and inside <std-ident> instead.


Best Practice

This element has been retained for backwards compatibility with ISO STS. For non-ISO processing, the element <doc-ident> and all the elements within it have been replaced by elements within <std-meta> and <std-ident>. All the information currently inside <doc-ident> can be tagged outside of the <doc-ident> element:
Use the <std-org> container to record the name, short name, and location for an SDO, or use the <originator> element within <std-ident>.
Use the <proj-id> element within <std-meta>.
Use the <content-language> element within <std-meta>.
Use the <release-version> element within <std-meta>.
Use <self-uri> element within <std-meta>.
ISO Note
This element (and thus all the elements within it) may be used only within <iso-meta>, <reg-meta>, or <nat-meta>, where they are retained for ISO use and for backwards-compatibility purposes. The sub-elements of <doc-ident> are closely related to the fields of ISO URNs as documented in RFC 5141 (from which some of the text describing them is borrowed).
