document use of ORCID ids in userId field #260
Author Name: Matt Jones (Matt Jones)
Kyle Braak [GBIF] has requested that we document how to use ORCID ids in EML documentation. He writes:
This includes describing the use of the http://orcid.org site as the directory, and showing an example of an ORCID in the text. We should also mak eit clear that a userId from a public source like ORCID is much more useful than a local userid from a site-specific system.
