> At last year's JATS-CON I heard a rumor about a proposed extension to JATS
for handling quizzes and Q&A with the idea that eventually it would become
part of the JATS specification.  Can anyone confirm the existence of a quiz
extension and point me to documentation of it?  I think it was something
Atypon submitted.

There is not a JATS module for handling questions and answers, but
there is a BITS (Book Interchange Tag Suite) module that handles these
in the BITS Tag Set that is under development and not yet

A given publisher or archive could choose to customize a JATS
Tag Set with the new question-answer module if they chose.

BITS is due out soon.
