>Subject: Re: XSchema Question 6: Entities
>> Question: Should entity support be provided in XSchema?
>No. General entities should be usable, as XSchema is an XML document.
>However, one of the problems with DTDs as they currently exist is
>their confusion in declaring both the structure of a document class,
>and in declaring entities primarily useful for a particular instance.
>The schema itself is really applicable to a class of documents, and
>should restrict itself to such. Don't re-invent the DTD; that's not
>useful. If this is successful, XML syntax for entity declarations may
>be a useful exercise, but it should be distinct from schemas.
