Last Call: Best Practices for Fragment Identifiers and Media Type Definitions

Author(s) and publish date


The Technical Architecture Group has published a Last Call Working Draft of Best Practices for Fragment Identifiers and Media Type Definitions. Fragment identifiers (fragids) within URIs are specified as being interpreted based on the media type of a representation. Media type definitions therefore have to provide details about how fragids are interpreted for that media type. This document recommends best practices for the authors of media type definitions, for the authors of structured syntax suffix registrations (such as +xml), for the authors of specifications that define fragid structures, and for authors that publish documents that are intended to be used with fragids or who refer to fragments within documents using URIs with fragids. Comments are welcome through 13 December. Learn more about the Technical Architecture Group.
