/ Gregory Murphy <Gregory.Murphy@eng.sun.com> was heard to say:
| The term "non-normative" is used frequently in XML 1.0 and in related
| specs. What a document means when it purports to be normative is clear to
| me, but when a section is labled "non-normative", I know what it is not,
| but not necessarily what it is.
| Can someone offer paraphrase what the specs mean when they use this term?
Informative (but not definitional). Explanatory (but not
definitional). Ancillary. Incidental. Unnecessary. Sometimes useful.
Be seeing you,
Norman.Walsh@Sun.COM | Clearness is so eminently one of the
XML Standards Architect | characteristics of truth that often it even
Web Tech. and Standards | passes for truth itself.--Joubert
