This is a completely minimalist section on notations.  To be honest, I'm not 
sure it even makes sense to include them since we're not doing entities in 
XSchema, but we still have support for notation (and entity) types in 
attributes, so what the heck.  

I'm sure someone out there will have a good example for this one.  (If someone

2.5 Notation Declarations

Notation declarations are made with XSC:Notation elements nested in the 
XSC:XSchema element.

<!ELEMENT XSC:Notation (Doc?, ((PubidLiteral, SystemLiteral?) | 
<!ATTLIST XSC:Notation 
<!ATTLIST XSC:PubidLiteral
<!ELEMENT XSC:SystemLiteral EMPTY>
<!ATTLIST XSC:Systemliteral

Notations may include either a Public Identifier and an optional system 
literal, or just a system literal.
