5.2 Value

  The structure of the value field shall be determined by the type of the variable. The value field represents a single value and not an array of values. The value field must be in one of two formats: fixed  or free . The fixed format is required for values of mandatory keywords  and recommended for values of all others. This standard imposes no requirements on case sensitivity  of character  strings other than those explicitly specified.
