      Footnote Macro

      All distributed language reference sets should be complete. However, some organizations maintain partial language reference sets that only specify differences from an existing reference set. For example, these reference sets may assume a default to the US English fully specified name. There is no formally specified set of rules for determining the appropriate descriptions from a combination of language reference sets at run time. Therefore, any default rules applied to a particular language reference set should be specified and applied by the organization maintaining that reference set before distribution.

      must include exactly one row with acceptability preferred referring to a fully specified name of each concept.

  • If the descriptiontypeId is
    Concept
