In the context of XML/EDI, a repository is a web site holding data accessible to a community of users. Such a site may contain definitions of Message Implementation Guidelines (MIGs) and equivalent DTDs. 'Indirect' validation of an incoming XML/EDI message could be performed by referring to a DTD which in turn could refer to another web site holding a code set (e.g. ISO currency codes).
Reference to a repository may be given in a DTD to indicate, for example, that elements the name of which is qualified by BSR are to follow the rules laid down on the site <www.iso.ch/BSR>.
A Repository may also be accessed through the xsl:import option of XSL
