"Date may be used to express temporal information at any level of granularity. Recommended best practice is to use an encoding scheme, such as the W3CDTF profile of ISO 8601."
railML semantics
This may be a combination of the date and time when the data set (railML file) was created. It may be represented according to xs:dateTime.

Attributes of dc:date / Attribute von dc:date / Attributs de dc:date

  • xml:lang (introduced with version 2.1): This is a unique identifier of language. It uses basically the language standard IETF BCP 47 (external link) which may be different to ISO 639-1 (external link) or ISO 639-2 (external link). For mapping hints see relation to other standards (external link).
    The usage of xml:lang does not make any sense in the context of a portable ISO 8601 date and time format.
