RE: Enlightenment via avoiding the T-word

Yes, and therefore, not simple.  Again, 
in a syntax editor, ALL bets are off. 
Neill Kipp beat me relentlessly to make 
me understand that surface syntax in 
SGML didn't tell one enough about the 
actual properties of the system itself. 
Ah the days of innocence and batch....

Cut and paste is never simple in XSDL 
just as it isn't in a procedural language 
as using MS Access for editing VBScript 
shows in ASP.  The nasty habit of filling 
in missing quote marks before one is quite 
done introducing bugs is perturbing. :-)

Is it a hole or a feature that isn't 
safe given some context of use?  Again, 
I thought local elements behaved like 
local variable names in a function until 
I had to write XPaths against them.  We 
have programmers all over the building 
still scratching their heads over the 
"in no namespace" explanation.

So I am still waiting to find out which 
feature is the DareToDoLess candidate.

Cut and paste is a interesting issue for XSDL.  XSDL allows one to create
not just local elements, but also anonymous complexTypes.  But XSDL also
allows for type substitution.  However, I cannot cut-and-paste the contents
of an anonymous complexType, even if it is a sub complexType of the
destination.  I, at least, consider this a whole.
