I'll have to check them ... I thought there were rules like 
leading-capital-camel-case for elements and leading-lower-camel-case for 
attributes ... things like that.  And there is no namespace for the support 
file as it is standalone and monolithic ... no need for a namespace ... do 
I still have to create one and complicate my software further?

Welllllllll ... that's what I want clarified ... the scope is important and 
I didn't understand what Mark was saying.

I'm going to follow up the threads when I get a chance.

Right ... but for the XSD to be normative I have to complicate my software 
(!!!!)  ... *that's* what I mean when I say I'm handcuffed by W3C SChema.

True ... but just give me a bit of time please to try and shortcut some 
criticisms ... it would be waste of time for 10 people to take the time to 
make comments on something that we know we will have to change.  I'm 
learning this from my ISO secretariat work.

Thanks for the feedback, Stephen, and for your patience with me.
