It is particularly important that certain data items be specified in a CIF as standard codes. These codes aid in the simple and unambiguous interpretation of a data item, and should be used wherever applicable. For example, the data item which describes the method by which hydrogen atoms are treated in the least-squares refinement process is associated with the data name _refine_ls_hydrogen_treatment and is assigned the CIF standard codes:
If an assigned CIF standard code is inappropriate, it is normal practice to add a text field of the type *_special_details. A complete list of the currently defined CIF data names with standard codes is given in Section 3 of Appendix I.
