Miscellaneous and miscellaneous-field

Postby VincentNS » Thu Oct 15, 2015 2:23 am

Just a short remark: the documentation about miscellaneous defines it as containing elements and then the miscellaneous-field as element. Nevertheless, in the example there is only text inside the miscellaneous element, without the field. This seems a bit an inconsistency: is a miscellaneous field always required, or not? Or are we interpreting this in the wrong way?

Hi Vincent,

Thank you for pointing this out. The example is incorrect. There is no text content in a miscellaneous element. The miscellaneous element contains zero or more miscellaneous-field elements, and those are the elements that contain text content along with a required name attribute. Sorry about this - we will try to get it fixed soon.
