Re: DTD Notation

I think you answered the wrong question -- but what you have described is 

Jim asked for the difference between]

 <!ELEMENT Test1 (ItemA, ItemB?, ItemC*)>


<!ELEMENT Test2 (ItemA, ItemB?, (ItemC)*)>

In this particular example, as far as I am aware, these paras around itemC 
are redundant although I have heard rumours that withou the para, some 
parsers get... shall we say, confused.  Anyone else have some real experience 
instead of my speculation?
