Re: deterministic content model
I think there is a *very* obvious solution for keys if you have unambiguous grammars. But there very well could be a *very* clean solution for keys even if we allow ambiguous grammars. This I think is very important to study -- I think we cannot get much further in defining operations for document processing if we base the operations on XML Schema. <warning>speaking for himself only</warning> cheers - murali.
