During the past years I have been working with several control systems. Even systems with equal functionality have different naming scemes for the properties of the records or points in the system. For example the high display value could be called: point_name.HDSP or point_name.HighDisplay or else. I am looking for a standard definition of the properties of this type. I am quite sure that I have seen such a standard mentioned i.e. in the @aGlance package but I have lost track to this product. Is there someone out there who could help to find the DIN/ISO/IEEE standard? In the end I want to create a DTD which will specify these properties. This way a data server can send XML data using the DTD to a 'standard' XML (or SOAP) client without having to translate the data with a style sheet. -> the initial implementation should follow a standard to make it more attractive to use it.
