--- Comment #6 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
You write:

<quote>
All Element Nodes constructed from an infoset have the type xs:untyped."

Where infoset appears without a hyperlink. Is that a different definition of
infoset than [infoset] with a hyperlink?
</quote>

This seems a bit disingenuous. Where the reference is hyperlinked, we guide
readers to a definition of the term. Where it is not hyperlinked, we expect
them to be able to read English, and to infer the meaning of a term from their
knowledge of the English language, the context in which the term appears, and
the terminology of the technical area with which the spec is concerned. If a
term has multiple meanings and we don't highlight one of them by underlining,
we expect the reader to work it out. That's what English is like. If this
leaves sentences that leave the semantics of the specification ambiguous,
please point them out and we will try to fix them. But we aren't going to
switch at this stage from writing in English to writing in formal mathematical
notation.
