No it does not.  I believe F11 and G11 still have to be changed.  It 
was my analysis that was incorrect, not the corrections.  I suggested 
in my analysis that J11 should be empty and that is not 
appropriate.  The changes to F11 and G11 still apply.

I believe it does, as Tim's prose states "... the thing called 
Despatch Advice. Document Status Code. Code uses ...".

Tim's response of "no changes" would indicate that the original DEN 
is acceptable and does not change.  Since the XSD has the original 
DEN, then I think nothing happens to the XSD for this entry.
