These are a set of guidelines for the ebXML Business Process Project Team web site and web pages.
You can post documents to the web site by ftp'ing them yourself or by asking Brian Hayes to post them for you.
If you post them yourself, it is generally desirable to post them in a common file format such as
HTML or PDF. You can post the native format of the document as well. In some cases it may be most
appropriate to just post the native format. For example, the metamodel is typically provided in just
Rational Rose format (
.mdl) until it reaches a point where it is ready for wider distribution and
review. At that point, it is then converted into another format.
Be mindful of the directory structure when you post documents and other files. Work-in-progress
documents and files belong in the
wip directory. Do not hesitate to create a subdirectory if
You can also ftp the file into the
incoming directory and then send email to
Brian Hayes with general description of the file and what page should link to it.
Overview...CCS used to create page layout rather than HTML tables, etc.
Cascading style sheets (CSS) are leveraged to make it easier to author web pages. The CSS approach gives us the web page look as if it was created using HTML tables without the complexities of HTML tables. Unfortunately, some versions of web browser do not understand CSS. In this case, the user will still get the information without the pretty layout.
