Title: Enumerations

Can anyone help?

According to my reading of XML1.0, the following would be an illegal declaration:

<!ATTLIST pangolin color ( |green|blue|red) >

because enumerations must be made up of nmtokens, and a nmtoken must contain at least one namechar.

However, most parsers seem to accept this.

Anyone know if my interpretation is correct, and as a bonus question, does the same apply to enumeration facets in XSD?
