RE: XML Syntax/Grammar
BNF refers to the Backus-Nauer Form. XML 1.0 is described in Extended Backus-Nauer Form (EBNF). Here is an example of EBNF from the XML recommendation:  S ::= (#x20 | #x9 | #xD | #xA)+ This production means that the symbol /S/ stands for one or more occurrences (+) of either the space (x20), the tab (x9), the linefeed (x0A), and the carriage return (x09) characters. Whenever the /S/ shows up in the EBNF, it represents space as described by the production . See the XML recommendation  for a brief description of EBNF notation; see ISO/IEC 14977  for a complete description.  http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml#sec-notation  http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/iso-ebnf.html Best of luck, Mike -----Original Message----- From: Xu, Mousheng (SEA) [mailto:Mousheng.Xu@s...] Sent: Wednesday, July 11, 2001 12:01 PM To: xml-dev@l...
