| Thanks for the quick turnaround, Norm.  A few editorial notes:
|
| 1) The must-within-must and must-within-should wording in section 4
|    is confusing.  I suggest the following:
|
| An xml:id processor must assure that the following statements hold for
| all xml:id attributes:
|
|     * The normalized value of each xml:id attribute is a valid NCName.
|     * If the type of an xml:id attribute is specified using a validation
|       technology, the type is 'ID'.
|
| An xml:id processor should assure that the following statement holds
| for xml:id attributes:
|
|     * All values of type )B�ID� within a document are unique.  
|
| 2) The "Strictly speaking" in the definition of validation is a hangover from
|    earlier drafts, and the definition of validation isn't actually marked up as
|    a definition.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
