[RFC2731] (Kunze, J., “Encoding Dublin Core Metadata in HTML,” December 1999.) defines "Encoding Dublin Core Metadata in HTML". Newer specifications published by the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) over the last decade, in particular "Expressing Dublin Core metadata using HTML/XHTML meta and link elements" (DC-HTML, http://dublincore.org/documents/dc-html/), have obsoleted this work.
Note: Implementers of RFC 2731 should note that DC-HTML introduces a new requirement with respect to the use of the "head" element's "profile" attribute.
This document is of administrative nature only and therefore there are no security relations related to it.
There are no IANA considerations related to this document.
|[RFC2731]||Kunze, J., “Encoding Dublin Core Metadata in HTML,” RFC 2731, December 1999.|
This proposal has been discussed and approved on the DC-ARCHITECTURE mailing list (DC-ARCHITECTURE@JISCMAIL.AC.UK, https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?A2=DC-ARCHITECTURE;XwVOng;20090818152516%2B0200).
Added John Kunze as Co-Author. Expand Security Considerations to say why there aren't any. Include title of RFC 2731 into this document's title. Mention that Dublin Core has maintained its version of the spec for the last decade. Add open issue "historic", which is waiting for community feedback.
Close issue "historic".
Issues that were either rejected or resolved in this version of this document.
email@example.com (2009-09-09): Umbrella issue for editorial fixes/enhancements.
firstname.lastname@example.org (2009-10-08): It's not clear whether this case is really a candidate for reclassification as "historic". After all, the format that was described in RFC 2731 is still in use in Dublin Core's DC-HTML; it just got revised. So simply stating that it is obsolete (which would be implied by publishing this document) should be enough.
Resolution (2009-11-19): Remove recommendation to reclassify as "historic".
