RE: XML spec and XSD
Hi Rick Just to clarify, I was not confusing a dictionary with a specification. My dictionaries are large and rectangular and most specs I read online :) I think where we may agree is, a spec has language control and many specs have glossaries for this. The point is that the term "valid" and "validation" are being used differently across the same standards organization within the same family of standards. So, I think if another revision were done of XML 1.0 a change as proposed would be appropriate. That is not to say it will be done. Lots of things are not rewritten endlessly - they stay as is, written within the context of the time.

It defines its own little world of tight technical terms. You are thinking of a dictionary perhaps?
