One additional abbreviation I am thinking of using is for when I want to
say, "the value of the @xxxx attribute."

I am considering using an asterisk similar to the way it is used as the
dereferencing operator in C++. For instance:


... will mean, "the value of the @about attribute."

If an attribute can contain a list (such as @typeof) then I will indicate
the entire list by appending a pair of square brackets after the name like


And if I wish to indicate one member of said list then I will put an 'i' in
the brackets similar to when one indicates a member of an array, like this:


Finally, sometimes the first member of said list is important so I will
indicate that with a zero (0) like this:


I know, it seems like a lot of "standardization" to talk about questions for
a standard. But, I figure you all, of all people, will understand the
