id=unique identifier of the person — compulsory — compulsory


Inside <guide> a guide working at a dive base is described. Any number of <guide> elements can appear one after the other.

For a dive guide always is a (potential) buddy, his/her personal data are stored inside the <buddy> section. Within <guide> a cross-reference to that person is made via the attribute.

Later inside <dive> either "directly" a cross-referencing on a <buddy> may be given (in this case the cross-referenced person is simply a <buddy>), or via a cross-reference on the identifier of <guide> (whereby this buddy at the same time is indicated as the <guide> of this dive).
