Any clues/information/implementations on such types of XML applications?
* Would anyone be knowing of any XML application which uses NOTATIONS the
way I aspire to use them (as shown in the eg. above)?
I have been told that datatype validation is taken care of by the
DCD/XSchema specs, but they are yet to reach proper standardisation and so I
