I just realized that there is a bug in the solution that I mailed this
morning. The period (.) is a special character meaning "any
character". To indicate that we want a period and not "any character"
the period must be escaped with a backslash, i.e., \.
Here's the fixed solution:
<datatype name="IP" source="string">
Datatype for representing IP addresses. Examples,
184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, etc.
This datatype restricts each field of the IP address
to have a value between zero and 255, i.e.,
Note: in the value attribute (above) the regular
expression has been split over two lines. This is
for readability purposes only. In practive the R.E.
would all be on one line.
