   <indicator measure="1" ascending="1">
     <title>Indicator 1 title</title>
     <description>Indicator 1 description text</description>
     <baseline year="2012" value="10">
      <comment>Baseline comment text</comment>
     </baseline>
     <period>
      <period-start iso-date="2013-01-01" />
       <period-end iso-date="2013-03-31" />
       <target value="10">
        <comment>Target comment text</comment> 
       </target>

    <title>Indicator 1 title</title>
    <description>Indicator 1 description text</description>
    <baseline year="2012" value="10"/>
    <period> 
     <period-start iso-date="2013-01-01"/> 
     <period-end iso-date="2013-03-31"/> 
     <target value="10"/> 
     <actual value="11"/> 
    </period> 
   </indicator>
   <indicator measure="1" ascending="1">
    <title>Indicator 2 title</title>
    <description>Indicator 2 description text</description>
    <baseline year="2012" value="10"/>
