base-tagset Base Tag Set Name
Which of the JATS standard tag sets is the basis for this document?
Until Version 1.3 of JATS, @dtd-version was a #FIXED attribute, set in the schema/DTD, that could not be changed by the JATS user. It was intended to name the highest-level version of JATS to which the document was valid. Being #FIXED meant that the attribute was always there, even if it was not present in the document.
Since the @dtd-version attribute has never provided a complete description of which version of the tag set a document is associated with, several attributes were added to the <processing-meta> element to describe the version choices more fully:
Which of the JATS tag set families is the basis for this document’s tag set? (e.g., “jats” or “bits”)
Which of the JATS standard tag sets is the basis for this document? (e.g., “publishing” or “archiving”)
Which table model is used by the tag set for this document? (e.g., “xhtml” or “oasis”)
Which version of MathML is used by the tag set for this document? (e.g., “3.0” or “2.0”)
