Template Styles

  • Plain Vanilla Template: This template contains most OSSDoc fields, with several of the most common elements repeated several times (you can always leave these blank).
  • Version History Template: Same as the Vanilla template, but with the option to represent a version history in your XML record.
  • Long Language List: Same as the Vanilla template, but with a much longer list of languages to describe your document's content language.
