In that case, the third party software should have used PIs. The format of the comments made it clear that the software wanted to include some information in there that could have been useful. If that software was not capable of modifying the schema, the best way to pass on that information to other applications was PIs - they need not be specified in the schema, they get passed to the calling application, the calling application is free to ignore them if it doesn't recognize them or finds them useless. IMHO, they are the substitute for the "crap" element that someone mentioned in this thread. -- Tahir Hashmi (VSE, NCST) http://staff.ncst.ernet.in/tahir tahir AT ncst DOT ernet DOT in We, the rest of humanity, wish GNU luck and Godspeed
