Good catch.

Our intent is to remove the 'value' attribute, and instead use the <value>
element.

I will fix the Schema right away.

Thanks!

In the following excerpt from the last call schema, what is the difference
between the new item <value> child element and the old item value attribute.

<xsd:element name="item">
   <xsd:complexType>
     <xsd:sequence>
       <xsd:element ref="xform:value"/>
       <xsd:group ref="xform:commonUIChildren"/>
     </xsd:sequence>
     <xsd:attributeGroup ref="xform:horzAttrs"/>
     <xsd:attribute name="id" type="xsd:ID"/>
     <xsd:attribute name="value" type="xsd:string"/>
   </xsd:complexType>
</xsd:element>


For example:

<items>
	<item value="23">
		<caption>Bla Bla</caption>
		<value>twenty three</value>
	</item>
</items>

Which value is the right value? I'm assuming the attribute accidentally got
left in, or it has a new and different meaning.

XForms Watchers,

Some have requested information on the changes planned for XForms as we
approach Last Call. I'm happy to provide an updated Schema for XForms that
shows some of the latest changes. A comment at the top of the file gives
details on what's changed.

The XForms Working Group has agreed to share this information on the
www-forms list in order to get early feedback, and encourage people to start
writing and validating forms. Please let us know what you think, and
especially if you see any mistakes or potential problems.

Disclaimer: While the XForms Working Group has agreed to the overall
changes, the specific implementation here hasn't been reviewed or approved.
This Schema is guaranteed to change. Also note that the old namespace
http://www.w3.org/2001/08/xforms remains, though this will definitely change
in our next publication. All namespace and XLink role URIs should be
considered advisory only.

Thanks!
