Type of Response


Used on a <response> element to indicate the type of response involved


This attribute does not describe the article upon which the response is commenting; it provides information about the response itself.

Authoring Note: Use of this attribute is not to be encouraged. It was added to allow for observed cases where a series of articles were grouped together as an introduction, an article, and several responses.
