Adding Comments, Annotation, and Documentation Nodes to XML Schemas

The XML Schema Recommendation provides comment and annotation nodes for you to provide information that documents an XML Schema. You can add these nodes to any node in an XML Schema.

The difference between comments and annotations is that a human being must read a comment node for it to have meaning. An annotation element allows you to specify nodes that a stylesheet can operate on.
