document-link and language. Schema error?

The document-link element (http://iatistandard.org/downloads/iati-common.xsd) may not be defined as expected.

The documentation (http://iatistandard.org/standard/activities) shows a <language> element, but the schema defines a language attribute instead.

This needs clarification and change if appropriate.

    This is an error in the original specification that we hope to correct in the first decimal upgrade. This involves altering the common.xsd schema, so please examine this proposal carefully.

    Proposed addition to Activities Standard

    • document-link/language/text() (0..1)  -  The ISO 639 code for the language of the document.


    NB. This was in the documentation of Version 1.01 but NOT in the schema. The language element is used rather than the xml:lang attribute as it refers to a language used in a reported object, not in the report itself.
