Non-deterministic content models
In Appendix E, the holy script says: <quote> [...] it is required that content models in element type declarations be deterministic. This requirement is for compatibility with SGML (which calls deterministic content models "unambiguous"); [...] </quote> This wording makes me wonder if there is any case where a non-deterministic content model would acctually be useful? That is, is the restriction a compromise, or can a non-deterministic content model always be simplified (like many algebraic expressions) to something shorter with the same meaning? Gustaf
