> BTW Is XSchema finally released and frozen? Make a splash about it.

I'm hoping to get a final version out this week.  The last round of reviews 
didn't produce many changes, and those it did produce were in recently added 
stuff (August or September).

If you've still got comments on section 4 (XSchema and DTDs) or section 5 (Using 
XSchema), get them to me *now*.

-- Ron Bourret

Expected changes:
Sections 1-3:
* Model cannot nest directly beneath Model (it can nest beneath Choice or Seq)
* Add Enumeration container. Allow under AttDef and XSchema.
* Add Doc and More to UnparsedEntity.  Unparsed entity names must be unique.
* Clarify description of Mixed.
* Add ElementNS and ElementPrefix attributes to AttGroup, AttDef, and Ref.  (How 
these work is still not 100% clear.)
* Explain how to create XSchema documents for use in both namespace-aware and 
unaware environments.

Section 4:
* Loosen restrictions on Doc and comment conversion.
* PIs are discarded.
* Explain how to handle text encodings in external entities

Section 5:
* Add a public ID to the XSchema PI.  Fix PI case.
