ready Technical Metadata for Text

Abbreviation: textMD

General Information
textMD is a XML Schema that details technical metadata for text-based digital objects. It most commonly serves as an extension schema used within the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Schema (METS) administrative metadata section. However, it could also exist as a standalone document. textMD can be used within the PREMIS element <objectCharacteristicsExtension>, as an extension for format-specific metadata within the PREMIS preservation metadata XML Schema versions 2.0 and 2.1. The textMD schema allows for detailing properties such as: encoding information (quality, platform, software, agent); character information (character set and size, byte order and size, line terminators); languages; fonts; markup information; processing and textual notes; technical requirements for printing and viewing; and page ordering and sequencing.
