Subject: Re: [ubl-lcsc] UBL Schema 1.0-alpha draft-1 20030918 (With Draft CodeList Schemas)

I have been going through the last draft, I have a few issues.  Maybe its my
use of the tools, but I keep getting multiple "Can not open file" messages
and its mostly the codelist files.  Is there a quick way to fix that?

Also, our document structure is still so dang flat - open a document and get
a thousand elements in your face.  None of what NDR was trying to say about
containers sunk in I guess.  I am just listing my objection to a very ugly
document design here.
