Subject: RE: [dita] Bug in DITA XML Schema and updates for XML catalog.

Hi Jeff,

How are you going to fix the misspelling of outputclass?  If you just correct the spelling, it is possible that existing documents will become invalid.

In most cases I would say that we should keep the misspellings, but in this case the same misspelling occur on <foreign> and <unknown>.  Both of these should be specialized in almost cases.  The only rare time you would have these directly in the document is after generalization.   The likelihood that someone is using these directly on the XML Schema side of things is fairly remote.  Maybe Eliot can comment on whether or not they use these elements directly in some of his implementation.  

I wonder if you shouldn’t wait on this for a week or two to see if we uncover anything else.

I am okay with that.

Kind regards,
