   RE: [xml-dev] XSD spec question

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

    The obvious question is why would you need attributes outside the XML Schema specification ?  
I can't think of any use for this feature that couldn't be achieved with xs:annotation, but that doesn't make this an inferior mechanism. I can think of many handy uses, such as tagging a schema component with @doc:since="12.5" to indicate the version of the schema at which the component was introduced.
