I am disappointed that the schema working group decided to extend SGML and XML's conflation of resource provision (entities) and document structure constraints. I would be glad to work on an XML instance-syntax resource provision specification if it would help you to split it off. I am already experimenting in that direction. I am not the first to point out that allowing parsed entities to be specified in a schema is violently incompatible with XML 1.0's notion of well-formedness. Even were that not the case it seems clear to me that validating a document and *completing it* are two different steps. Preumably the document's structure should be complete before validation begins. Surely now is the right time to correct this 13 year old mistake! -- Paul Prescod - ISOGEN Consulting Engineer speaking for only himself http://itrc.uwaterloo.ca/~papresco And so, in one of history's little ironies, the global triumph of bad software in the age of the PC was reversed by a surprising combination of forces: the social transformation initiated by the network, a long-discarded European theory of political economy, and a small band of programmers throughout the world mobilized by a single simple idea. - http://old.law.columbia.edu/my_pubs/anarchism.html xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
