  • All formats and media types recognised equally
  • Facilitates the development of NewsItems
  • Collections of NewsItems
  • Named relationships within and between NewsItems
  • Structure consisting of ContentItems, NewsComponents and named relationships between NewsComponents
  • Alternative representations within the same NewsComponent
  • Explicit inclusion, inclusion by reference and exclusion of NewsComponents and alternatives
  • Attachment of metadata from standard and non-standard Controlled Vocabularies
