There are places in the X Toolkit, in applications, and in the X protocol
that define and use string names. The context is such that conflicts are
possible if different components use the same name for different things.

The X Consortium maintains a registry of names in these domains:
orgainization names, selection names, selection targets, resource types,
application classes, and class extension record types; and several others.

The list as of April 1994 is in the file xc/registry in the R6 distribution.
The current Registry is also available by sending "send docs registry" to the
xstuff mail server.

To register names (first come, first served) or to ask questions send to
xregistry@x.org; be sure to include a postal address for confirmation.
