Subject: RE: <optional> vs. <zeroOrOne>
Message text written by Michael Fitzgerald > Perhaps so but the mantras zero-or-one (?), zero-or-more (*), and one-or-more (+) still ring in my head. I think most of us, even James, have lived with DTDs longer than TREX. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I rest my case. <<<<<<<<<< And for this reason I like <optional> as I've always hated <zero-or-one> . Shakespear would have no truck with such nonsense. Optional is a perfectly good word that everyone understands immediately. All other imposters need to be explained! <while> and <until> similarly go back to the beginning of COBOL! DW.
