"thesaurus" attribute for the
<keyword> element is optional. However, it is preferable to use this attribute if possible (official names are defined in the ANZLIC Metadata Guidelines Version 2 documentation).
Another release of the DTD will occur during 2000-2001 in line with the review of the ANZLIC Metadata Guidelines. That will address any Page 0 issues and any common Page 1 requirements. The next revision is expected to evolve to be the Australian profile of the ISO metadata.
Please discuss any issues on the OZMETA-L geospatial metadata email listserver.
