   Re: [xml-dev] About "Normative References"

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

The term "normative" relates to a technical specification/standard in
that in order to be fully compliant with the specification, one
(usually) needs to comply with the normative section(s) of the
specification. Non-normative sections are often included as usage
examples and the like.
