I'm saying that there is no way to definitively assert how many digits
there are in a zip code. One Schema's word is as good as anothers.

No, note I used "i.e." XML Schemas :-)

Believe me, I've seen all of this stuff. I could probably recite it for

No. I have done something like that though (that works for any XHTML page)
Also c.f. my SW Demo: http://infomesh.net/swdemo/ Note that both of these
examples use the W3C's Xalan servers which often go down.

Excellent! Try: http://xhtml.waptechinfo.com/swr/ and

If we are aiming for a Semantic Web that we want to use, we may as well
list what we want to use it for and aim or that for the time being.
