      and HTML

      A reminder that the IPTC and its member News Agencies are using very
      widely the IPTC's alternative to CURIEs and QNames, called QCodes.
      The differences between CURIEs and QCodes are:

      - The QCode spec requires that the URI corresponding to the alias
      is a valid URI. The CURIE spec, IIRC, does not.

      - The QCode spec explicitly allows the right-hand side not to be a
      legal XML Name. I don't know what the CURIE spec says about this.

      - While the creators of RDFa stated that the current mechanism for
      alias definition is to be considered simply one of a set of
      possible mechanisms, I think that it is currently the only
      specified mechanism. We (the IPTC) rejected that mechanism as
      too verbose and created, instead, our catalog.
