   Re: [xml-dev] [schema] which assertions can't you express ?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

hi Neal,

what should i understand ?

-the section element must have an id attribute which value must be :
   -'report definition' if the host element is root
   -'officers' if the parent of the host element is identified with 
'report definition'
   -'secretary' if ...
   -'name' or 'appointment date' or ... if ...

is that your assertions ?
