Re: Accepting non-deterministic content models

Hi Eric,

Consider this portion of an instance document:


When a parser gets to <a>, which "a" is it - the element declaration
that is the immediate child of <xsd:choice>, or the element declaration
that is an immediate child of <xsd:sequence>?  There's no way for the
parser to know unless it "looks ahead" to the next element.  That's
non-deterministic.  /Roger
