      The article parts are to be considered a bundle that together make up the article. They donĀ“t convey any layout information. 

      E.g. one article part is typically considered the "main article part" holding the main content for the article, another article part could be a "factbox" with facts related to the content in the main article part. 

      I hope this clarify the picture somewhat.

      Hi Ola


      A question about the content of an article: is it in the journalistic sense only a single news story (made of text + photo + video etc.) and the article parts have primarily a relevance for the layout or are the article parts containing different stories?


      As NewsML-G2 has a basic rule that a news item may contain only a single piece of news this is quite relevant.

      I will follow up your questions if you clarify this.

      Subject: [newsml-g2] Representing hierarchical structures in NewsML-G2




      I am new to NewsML and have a question regarding best practice for representing hierarchical structures in NewsML. The native format for the articles in question could be described with a snippet of XML (this is not the real native format but it describes the structure of the articles in question):


      <Article id="1">


          <Name>Fusce vel tincidunt lacus</Name>







              <ArticlePart id="10">



                      <headline>Vivamus condimentum arcu sed</headline>

                      <leadin>Neque porro quisquam</leadin>

                      <body><p><b>Lorem</b>ipsum dolor sit amet, <u>consectetur</u> adipiscing elit.</p></body>



                      <Image id="110">





                      <Image id="220">







              <ArticlePart id="15">



                      <headline>Quisque nisl nisl</headline>                

                      <body><p>Duis sem justo, cursus sit amet tortor eu, tincidunt mattis enim</p></body>



                      <Image id="330">










      The article itself does not have any content but is a mere container for metadata. The actual content is divided in so called article parts (ArticlePart). 


      An article can have 1 to many article parts and a article part can have 0 to many images.


      The question is then how to go about transforming this to NewsML? I have tried using groupSet element which I guess work but the consequence is that I have to have one group per article part (in order to keep track of where images reside in the structure).


      Also, since much of the metadata resides on the article, should I copy it down to each newsItem (i.e. article part) or should I put it on the packageItem level?
