Subject Re: Schema local element scope problem in Xerces 1.2.0?
Date Thu, 14 Sep 2000 15:20:12 GMT
Hi Travers,
Thanks for reporting this.

A caveat is that there a few inconsistencies and bug in the primer, the 
final word should always be the Structures draft 

I will consult with Eric Ye about this.
