3.2 XML Infoset definitions

This part of the standard makes use of the following terms defined in W3C Recommendation XML Information Set:

a. Infoset or XML Infoset

b. Element or XML Element

c. Attribute or XML Attribute

Notes: 1. The concept of an XML Attribute is quite distinct from that of a DICOM Attribute.

2. To avoid confusion with the DICOM terms with similar names, the text of the DICOM Standard will use XML Element and XML Attribute when referring to these XML Infoset concepts. The appearance of Element or Attribute without the term XML in front of them generally refers to the DICOM concepts instead of the XML Infoset concepts.
