Is there any difference between

<!ATTLIST foo xml:link CDATA FIXED "simple">


<!ATTLIST foo xml:link (simple) "simple">

In the first case I define an attribute xml:link to have a CDATA type
that is fixed at the value "simple".  In the second case I define an
attribute xml:link to have an enumeration type with one possible value,
and it defaults to that one value.  Seems to me like these definitions
are semantically equivalent. Yes?  /Roger
