In all honesty, will this do any good? First, people (and not just on xml-dev) have been complaining for a long time about how difficult the XML Schemas spec is to read. While the WG should be credited for writing the tutorial in response, they didn't fix the spec itself. While I'm sure there are many reasons for this -- I would imagine wanting to finish in a timely fashion being one of the main ones -- the consequences of this decision are now making themselves felt in interoperability problems. Second, I don't think that rewriting this sentence here or clarifying that paragraph there will really do much good. The difficulty of the language pervades the spec and I feel that the only real solution is to rewrite the spec from scratch. Given the number of different interpretations that already exist in the form of conflicting schema tools, it seems unlikely that this would introduce any new problems. -- Ron
