NAR tutorial #1
Please check Example-SmallArticle-NITFcontent.xml and Example-SmallArticle-XHTMLcontent.xml
They both represent the same news item, using two different content formats.
You’ll find them at:
A news item represents news information in any format a provider chooses: in order to make everybody happy, we provide here an XHTML sample and a NITF sample. The next examples of textual news will use XHTML, as we feel that this format is of broader usage in the xml community, and we do not want you to need learning NITF in order to understand NewsML2.
Both examples are enriched with xml comments, explaining the details of the implementation. Please review them, comment and ask any question you think of: we’ll try to answer quickly.
After the NewsML2 Architecture is stabilized, the IPTC could end-up recommending a *textual news* implementation, using either an evolution of NITF or XHTML2.0 (which is currently a draft).
In the short term, the IPTC will only recommend an implementation for photos, graphics, audio & video clips using the NAR. The next tutorial example will be a first step in that direction.
