Word of the day: Transfer Syntax

Hi Folks,


Example usages of the term “transfer syntax”:


The empty set: in the XML Schema transfer syntax, this can be written <xsd:sequence/>


The null set: in the transfer syntax: <xsd:choice/>


An expanded name: in the transfer syntax, <xsd:element ref = "QName"/> or <xsd:element name = "NCName">  


[Definition] Transfer Syntax: The XML syntax used when transferring data.


I made up that definition. Is there a better (clearer, more complete) definition?


The example usages come from Michael Sperberg-McQueen’s paper [1].
