<num> Number

<num> is an optional generic element used to encode a number in any form. @localtype may be used to designate specific types of numbers, such as “acquisition.” It should not be confused with specific numeric information such as may be found in <container>, <recordid>, <otherrecordid>, or <unitid>.

It may be used within <abstract>, <archref>, <bibref>, <entry>, <event>, <item>, <p>, <physfacet>, <publicationstmt>, <ref>, <seriesstmt>, and <unittitle>.

Attributes

  • @altrender – not required. Use if the content of the element should be displayed or printed differently than the rendering established in a style sheet for other occurrences of the element.
  • @audience – not required. Use to set whether the element’s contents will be visible to external users or to internal ones. Possible values are: “internal” and “external.”
  • @encodinganalog – not required. May contain information to map this tag to a particular element in another schema.
  • @id – not required. Creates an ID for element. Can be used for linking.
  • @lang – not required. Three-letter code that indicates the language in which the element’s contents were written. It should come from ISO 639-2b.
  • @localtype – not required. This attribute may be used within a number of elements. Its use and values are not defined by the schema and may be defined locally.
  • @script – not required. Four-letter code that indicates the script in which the element’s contents were written. It should come from ISO 15924.
