<named-content> Named Special (Subject) Content

Word or phrase whose content/subject matter has distinct semantics or content-related significance.


In print or display, such semantic content is likely to be treated differently, for example, given a stand-out typographic style such as italics or background shading.

Attribute Best Practice

If the content of the <named-content> element is a term from a taxonomy, ontology, term-list, vocabulary, industry glossary, or other known source, then the vocabulary attributes should be used to record that source. This source can be a formal ontology or an informal field of study. Four attributes are used in this Tag Set to identify terms from such a controlled or an uncontrolled vocabulary:
Name of the controlled or uncontrolled vocabulary, taxonomy, ontology, index, database, or similar that is the source of the term. For example, for a subject term, a value might be the IPC Codes (“ipc”) or MESH headings (“mesh”). For an uncontrolled term, the value might be an area of study such as “medical-devices” or merely the word “uncontrolled”.
Unique identifier of the vocabulary, such as (but not limited to) a URI or DOI. For example, for Dublin Core (DCC), the identifier may be “http://dublincore.org/documents/2012/06/14/dces/”.
The content of the element is the display version of the vocabulary or taxonomic term. The @vocab-term attribute holds the canonical version of the same term, as it appears in the vocabulary. For example, if the attribute value is “digitized-vor”, the element might contain the display text “Digitized Version of Record”.
Unique identifier of the term within a specific vocabulary, such as (but not limited to) an item number, a URI, DOI, etc.
Related Elements
The related <styled-content> element may, in some instances, produce the same look on print or display as some <named-content> elements. Both mark content that has a visual distinction; the difference between the two elements is intent. If it is known that this word is in italics because it is a genus or species name, those semantics should be preserved with a <named-content> element with a @content-type attribute of “genus-species” or equivalent. The <styled-content> element would merely tell you that it was always in green shaded background style="green-shading".
Best Practice: Similarly, if a word is in italics because it is a foreign phrase, one very typical way to tag it would be as:
... remarkable for his <named-content 
  xml:lang="fr">joie de vivre</named-content>
and lively expression. ...
Being web-only or print-only is not a stylistic matter, but rather a particular use, which should be tagged with the @specific-use attribute on the appropriate element, perhaps even on a <named-content> or <styled-content> element.
