Under "Content model definitions," you have:

"The content model use the following syntax to define what markup is
allowed for the content of the element: ... 

A | B 
    Both A and B are permitted in any order. "

Should this be:

A | B

    One and only one of A and B are permitted.


My reference is:

which states:

"| One and only one must occur"
