Re: [xml-dev] what do "compositor" and "particle" mean?

"particles" come from XML itself - http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/

  The grammar is built on content particles (cps), which consist of
names, choice lists of content particles, or sequence lists of content

"compositor" is Schema's term for the operators that let you compose
(put together) particles into sequences, choices, or "alls" :)
