description **************************************************************************** * SECTION II - DTD * **************************************************************************** APPLICATION-BODY PCT Art 3(2) states "(2) An international application shall contain, as specified in this Treaty and the Regulations, a request, a description, one or more claims, one or more drawings (where required), and an abstract." The Request is dealt with by a separate DTD since it will be handled by form filling software and requires different processing later. The main application will be authored by the applicant as one word processor file, the order follows general practice today. The sequence list (although part of the description) is a separate sub-document which will reference an ST.25 compliant file. Attributes: lang = language of application - use ISO639 language code dtd-version = dtd version number file = filename of the whole application id = unique id for this application - could be file name status = status of the application; values: new = new application id = an identifier for this application (could be filename) country = WIPO ST.3 code for application file-reference-id = applicant's or agent's file reference, if any
