    An attribute binding model



    An attribute binding model is presented and discussed to illustrate the use of such reference models in the ANSI X3H3 graphics software standardization effort. The model helps in defining and illustrating issues, and in explaining the proposed standard to those who will accept and use it. Using the model components and attributes can be categorized and characterized.
