Standard compliance test(s) for /recipient-region/*
Recipient region can be declared just through the relevant code:
<recipient-region code="289"/>Additionally, the name of the region can also be declared.
<recipient-region code="289">South of Sahara, regional<recipient-region>Where the name of the region is declared in a language other than the default, it is good practice to cite this:
<recipient-region code="289" xml:lang="es">Africa subsahariana</recipient-region>When multiple regions are declared, then the percentages should equal 100% for that activity
<recipient-region percentage="60" code="289">South of Sahara, regional</recipient-region> <recipient-region percentage="40" code="189">North of Sahara, regional</recipient-region>
Additionally, a region vocabulary can also be declared in this element
<recipient-region vocabulary="1" code="289">South of Sahara, regional</recipient-region>
Where used, the @percentage attribute is now designated as a decimal value and no longer as a positive Integer
