[change list snipped]
I've read the changes and agree. I'm still a bit uneasy with the following two
items, but I'm willing to agree to whatever the list decides, including leaving
them as they are:
1) If an attribute type is not declared, it is assumed to be CDATA. I lean
2) A Choice or Seq must have two or more elements. This makes logical sense,
but I'm still a bit afraid that people will commonly include only a single
element and that we ought to allow it. Perhaps it's due to one of my mother's
favorite sayings: "We got vanilla [ice cream]. Waddya want?"
My Web site now points to John's.
