    Post Context vs Content

    Hi,

    I am a programmer, and I am finding a right term in this context.

    Considering a music event with multiple information (we call attributes), grouped as follows:

    (1) title of the performance, description, singers, gernes,... (textual information of the event)

    (2) place or location

    (3) time

    I am finding the name for the three groups. For the second and the third groups, I am using spatial and temporal components of the event.
    But I don't know how to name the first one. I am considering "textual content" or "context".
    Which one is better? or may be any other terms ?

    Thanks,

    Ca Vang

    Default Re: Context vs Content

    Are there multiple items in the first group?

    How about "event details?"

    Thanks for the reply.
    I think "event details" is also good. However, I need a term that differs from and can be compared to "spatial and temporal components".
    There are multiple items in the first group, but both of them are textual information about an event.
    So I want something related to "textual component".
    Do you have any ideas?
