> The HTML5 specification states that @scheme must only be declared once per
> page, for character encoding. This poses a problem for those using the Dublin
> Core specification for metadata in HTML5, in which encoding schemes for syntax
> and vocabulary must be declared, per property as appropriate. Examples:
> <meta name="dcterms.modified" scheme="W3CDTF" content="2011-03-22" />
> <meta name="dcterms.issued" scheme="W3CDTF" content="2010-03-15" />
> <meta name="dcterms.language" scheme="ISO639-2" content="eng" />

What consuming software are you writing this data for? What piece of software
does something with the scheme attribute?

> From what I can tell from the HTML5 spec, this has not changed. Nor has it
> changed in the W3Schools HTML5 online course:
> http://www.w3schools.com/html5/tag_meta.asp
