Subject: Re: Getting Back to Basics - How to describe Dates and Times andEvents?
I applaud Todd Boyle for coming to his senses and dropping all of the specifically-named date and accounting period elements from his General Ledger schema. But I had gotten the sense from John McClure's examples, though, that Todd would be able to have his cake and eat it too: John is able to use <RequestedShipDate> as a readable tag in his document instances, but the mechanics behind the scene reduce that to a normalized Date/Time type, augmented with a UN/EDIFACT qualifier. I don't know RDF at all, or schema that well, but is John missing something in his definitions? Though he has some type of linkage to the qualifier element, identified as "unedifact:de2005," he doesn't say which qualifier applies to the definition of "RequestedShipDate." I would have expected something to indicate code "10" and perhaps an English comment derived from the name of the code:"Shipment date/time, requested." William J.
