A note about DC-Text
The DCMI Abstract Model describes the constructs which make up DC metadata description sets.
DC-Text provides a syntax for serialising, or representing, a DC metadata description set in plain text.
A plain text format for serialisation of such description sets is useful as a means of presenting examples in a way which highlights the constructs of the DCMI Abstract Model, and also as a means of comparing the information represented in other formats such as DC-XML, RDF/XML and XHTML/HTML.
