Hi everyone,

My team and I at the Mihajlo Pupin Institute (Belgrade, Serbia) are working
on establishing a Serbian open data catalog using CKAN.

One of our use cases is related to publishing data from the Serbian National
Statistics Office. We're having troubles determining the appropriate values
for the 'Format' and 'Resource Type' fields for our resources. Each resource
is, basically, a page listing the statistical data with three links (above
and below the table) for exporting the results to XML, XLS or PDF (e.g.
http://bit.ly/vNNAwd). Is there a convention for describing such resource
types? http://wiki.ckan.org/Domain_Model/Resource didn't really help.

Do you have any suggestions? Any help would be much appreciated.
