I see.

NewsML 2 uses the following syntax:

<catalog>
   <scheme alias="gnre" uri="http://iptc.org/newscodes/genre#" />
   <scheme alias="rol" uri="http://iptc.org/newscodes/role#" />
   <scheme alias="scn" uri="http://iptc.org/newscodes/scene#" />
   [...]
</catalog> 

As discussed in another thread, we're currently considering dropping
the trailing "#".

Regards,
Misha
