Abstract

   This document defines the syntax as well as the semantics of the
   information to be included in the phone book for roaming
   applications.  It comprises the information necessary to select the
   most appropriate ISP and to configure the host to get access to the
   network of the provider. The specification consists of a small set of
   required information elements and a variety of possible extensions.
   All data is specified in XML [5] (Extensible Markup Language) syntax
   leading to a concise XML DTD (Document Type Declaration) for the
   phone book.
