The meaning of the "string" datatype?
Hi Folks, Consider this XML Schema declaration: <element name="Author" type="string" /> I want to reconfirm my understanding of what the declaration means: In an instance document: <Author>__________</Author> ^ | | The content of <Author> can be characters from any language - English, Chinese, Arabic, Italian, Greek, German, Spanish, Russian, etc - plus punctuation symbols plus math symbols. If I did my arithmetic correctly , the total number of different characters is: 1,112,000. Furthermore, the length of the content of <Author> is unconstrained: it would be perfectly valid to place a billion characters between the start tag and end tag. Do you agree? /Roger  The allowable characters for the string datatype is any character in these hex ranges: Char ::= #x9 | #xA | #xD | [#x20-#xD7FF] | [#xE000-#xFFFD] | [#x10000-#x10FFFF]
