1.  Simple order response formatting specification

This formatting specification describes a rendering of an instance of the UBL Order Response Simple document model according to a conceptual office-oriented layout.

For a list of all formatting specifications and an overview of the documentation conventions, please visit the formatting specification home page.

1.1.  Status

This specification has no formal status at this time. It should not be considered a reference interpretation of UBL documents. Feedback is sought from users of stylesheets that implement this formatting specification regarding suggestions for change for consideration by the OASIS UBL committees for incorporation into these formatting specifications.

Presentational semantics may never be formalized or normative in the UBL project due to differing international requirements and conventions for the presentation of information found in business documents. This document contains only examples from a few of what will probably be many available UBL stylesheet libraries.

1.2.  Example renderings and implementations

Example renderings:

1.3.  Layout order and information

Items in this formatting specification are ordered roughly from the laid out fields on the form in the order left-to-right, top to bottom.

Important: the rendering of a number of fields is very simplified, reflecting a Western European interpretation of a subset of fields (as in names and addresses). User requirements need to be better understood for the level of granularity in these formatting specifications.

1.4.  Namespaces

The following namespaces are mapped to the prefixes in the expressions below:

  • cat = "urn:oasis:names:tc:ubl:CommonAggregateTypes:1:0-beta"

    rs = "urn:oasis:names:tc:ubl:OrderResponseSimple:1:0-beta"

2.  Miscellaneous information

The following information is unrelated to the visible fields of the form.

2.1.  Document header information

Table 1. XPath information

XPath addresses

This information shows up in the window-title bar of the HTML browser, and in the document title supported by some XSL-FO processors.
