Abstract

   This document describes a URN (Uniform Resource Name) namespace that
   is engineered by the Organization for the Advancement of Structured
   Information Standards (OASIS) for naming persistent resources stored
   in the XML.org repository (such as XML (Extensible Markup Language)
   Document Type Definitions, XML Schemas, Namespaces, Stylesheets, and
   other documents).

1. Introduction

   The XML.org Registry is provided by XML.org as a public service where
   XML schemas, DTDs, stylesheets, and other documents can be shared.
   Documents are submitted to a repository then retrieved by others who
   may want to use them.  These documents require unique identifiers.

   Motivated by these observations, XML.org would like to assign URNs to
   some resources in order to retain unique, permanent location-
   independent names for them.

   This namespace specification is for a formal namespace.

2. Specification Template

   Namespace ID:

      "xmlorg" requested.
