   Re: [xml-dev] Data streams

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Tedd: you can do so. Spaces are used as delimiters in stead of , in XML 

Check the "list" definition in Section of XML Schema Data types.
Also you can find "string" definition in the above spec.

I am sure you can see examples by just google: "list of strings"

best, murali.
