Description

This datatype allows the validation, storage and retrieval of additional authors. For each author, it is capable of handling a name and an E-mail address. It is only the E-mail address that will be validated. It is typically useful when there is a need for storing information about additional authors who have written/created different parts of an object's contents. The following screenshot shows the class attribute edit interface for this datatype.
