Re: How to get the 1st element in DTDD

How about this.. once you specify root elements
you preclude these root elements from being embedded
inside other documents, such as a
SOAP/Biztalk/ebXML envelope.  I think
all documents should be embeddable,
and I can't think of any reason why you
would not want to do that, except perhaps
for security reasons (really stretching it).

Or am I not understanding what you mean?

I have always believed that the schema should specify the
possible root types, people have always said against this, I have always
waited for one good reason for not specifying the root of the document in
the schema, but unfortunately, I do not think I have seen any... I will
keep waiting for some good reason ...
