Re: [xml-dev] What techniques do you employ to ensure that your datais precisely and unambiguously specified?


It should be obvious that your examples don't contradict what Michael said.  How do you know that, if the W3C should manage to come up with a shorter (but just as adequate;  and how do you measure that?) specification for XML Schema 1.1, more people wouldn't read it?
