Example Usage

Example usage of language of a document-link in a result element.
The @language attribute declares a valid code (en) from the Language codelist.
Note: This specifies the language of the document being linked to.
   <document-link format="application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text" url="http:www.example.org/docs/result_en.odt">
    <title>
     <narrative>Results Report 2013</narrative>
    </title>
    <description>
      <narrative>Report of results</narrative>
    </description>
    <category code="A01" />
    <language code="en" />
    <document-date iso-date="2014-02-05" />
