                   The "xml2rfc" version 3 Vocabulary
                        draft-iab-rfc7991bis-01

Abstract

   This document defines the "xml2rfc" version 3 vocabulary: an XML-
   based language used for writing RFCs and Internet-Drafts.  It is
   heavily derived from the version 2 vocabulary that is also under
   discussion.  This document obsoletes the earlier v3 grammar described
   in RFC 7991, which in turn obsoleted the v2 grammar in RFC 7749.
