The pattern can have a name attribute to give it an id. I left them out of
the examples for clarity.

The is-a attribute connects the pattern to an abstract pattern declaration
with the same name. So in the example above there would be something like
  <pattern name="RequiredChild" abstract="true">
     <rule context=" $parent ">
        <assert test=" count( $child ) &gt;= 1 ">
        In a <name/> element, the element <name select=" $child "/> is
