  • saxfeaturename for a SAX feature name; for example, http://xml.org/sax/features/namespaces

  • saxpropertyname for a SAX property name; for example, http://xml.org/sax/properties/declaration-handler

  • soapaction for a SOAP action; see SOAP Version 1.2 Part 2: Adjuncts

  • rddlpurpose for an RDDL purpose; see Resource Directory Description Language (RDDL)

  • rddlnature for an RDDL nature; see Resource Directory Description Language (RDDL)

  • homepage for a home page; for example, http://nwalsh.com/

  • weblog for a web log; for example, http://norman.walsh.name/
