    • Product name
    • Name used in profile name="..." (often--but not always-the product name?)
    • Details about your <technique profile="..."> and <extra><technique profile=..."> extensions
    For example, a company named "My Company", product named "My Product", profile "mp", with extensions for <image> and <camera>.

Link (by company) Profile= name Elements extended
My Company My Product extensions mp
  • <camera>
  • <image>
  1. Click your new "companyname productname extensions" link to create an article with that name:
    • Add to the article the following text (substituting your own company and product name):
         {{extensions}}
    My Company provides extensions for the following elements:
    * [[camera My Product extension]]
    * [[image My Product extension]]
  2. Add rows to the following tables (see "What goes into the table rows," below):

    Softimage XSI extensions
