content-version-type Type of the Content Version Statement

This @content-version-type identifies the type of information contained in the <content-version> element.


The BITS element <content-version> may contain a variety of content such as: a word or phrase from a controlled vocabulary, for example, “proof”, “draft”, a version statement (“Second revised version”), a version number (“2-a”), or other version identifier. The @content-version-type attribute can be used to help explain and identify this information.

Best Practice

Because the <content-version> element is so loosely defined in BITS, the element should always be given either a @vocab attribute naming the controlled vocabulary from which the status term is taken or an @content-version-type attribute naming the type or kind of status identifier given in the element content.
OPTIONAL on element: <content-version>
Value Meaning
Text, numbers, or special characters The type of version number or version status identifier that identifies this version of the document.
Restriction @content-version-type is an optional attribute; there is no default.
