Re: DTD Notation

>What's the difference between "ItemC*" and "(ItemC)*"?

None, as everybody already said.

Parens ALMOST never matter.

That said, there is one warning.  Since #PCDATA must
be first in any grouping, there is a big difference

(#PCDATA | itemC)*   (valid)

and the invalid

((#PCDATA | itemC))*
