Hello people,

Since I have been following the discussion about names of human beings I ask
myself the following question:

Would it be possible to have a list of common used labels that would be the
same for everyone? not only for international use, but also more locally in
a specific language...

For example, zipcode is one of the elements that is used in a wide range of
XML documents. There are lots of ways of declaring the element that contains
the zipcode, you can call it zipcode, postalcode, postcode (in dutch),
codigo-postal (in spanisch). It would be usefull to have a list of common
labels that is not industry specific.

I am asking this here because during a presentation of XML for a group of
developers in de mortgage industry in the netherlands one of the first
question was wich labels should be used in the document, and if there was a
common list of element labels in the netherlands for lets say name, adres,
bankaccountnumber, city and so on.

Thanks for any comments on this,

David Valera
