Conformance to DC 1.1 and recommended qualifiers

DC-dot, UKOLN's Web-based Dublin Core generator and editor, is now conformant with the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set, Version 1.1: Reference Description and partially conformant with the recommended Dublin Core Qualifiers.

What does this mean?

Note: DC-dot doesn't allow you to explicitly assign encoding schemes to element values... but if you enter a Date of the form YYYY-MM-DD, a Type from the DCMI Type list, a Format that appears to be a MIME type or a Language code that appears to be of the form 'en' or 'en-uk', then it will correctly assign an encoding scheme taken from the list of recommended qualifiers.
