NPG would like to be able to include timestamps to the publication dates of some of our articles. This would be particularly used for our news content where publishing embargoes specify a time as well as a date. These embargo times usually arise from external agencies, such as the publisher of the article being reported on. The embargo time is intended to inform readers exactly when an article was published.
|Submitter Proposed Solution|
We would like to propose adding an optional "time" element to the "date" and "date-in-citation" elements. The "time" element would have the same attributes (@content-type, @specific-use, and @xml:lang) and content model (Text, numbers, or special characters) as the related elements "day", "month" and "year". We would propose that the documentation for this element recommend that the content be either a time or a date-time string in UTC format (ISO 8601 specifications), to ensure international conformity and applicability. The documentation could also recommend the @content-type attribute value be either "UTC" or "ISO-8601" to indicate this.
