Sorry. "Element type" is a precise term; the generic identifier is the element type name, and <element type="FOO"> matches exactly and only the elements whose type name is "FOO". The element <a> is an element of type "a"; <b> is an element of type "b", and so on. So you are correct that *if* <a><b><c> are elements of type "item"..., but they're not. See section 3.1 of REC-xml-19980210, specifically the paragraph after the "Start-tag" productions. -Chris -- <!NOTATION SGML.Geek PUBLIC "-//Anonymous//NOTATION SGML Geek//EN"> <!ENTITY crism PUBLIC "-//O'Reilly//NONSGML Christopher R.
