Yep.  That's completely different from my notion of type (for XML, anyway), 
which is a set of values with a common lexical representation.  That 
representation can include both markup and textual representation.

Further understandings start from that lexical representation and can get 
more interesting.

I think you can get from mine to yours, but going from yours to mine just 
exasperates me most of the time.
