XML excised the pernicious mixed content bug not through its baroque and
restrictive #PCDATA rules but by stating that all whitespace is passed
to the application, no matter what. Is XML Schema in the business of
filtering whitespace? If not, howe could it reintroduce the but?

 Paul Prescod  - ISOGEN Consulting Engineer speaking for himself
"An indiscriminate creation of exculsive priviliges (patents) tends 
rather toobstruct than to stimulate invention. It creates a class 
of speculative schemers who make it their business to watch an 
advancing wave of improvement, and gather its foam in the form of 
patented monopolies, which enable them to lay a heavy tax on the 
industry of the country, without contributing anything to the real 
advancement of the arts." - American Supreme Court (1882)
