Hi Mike.

Nice work! Since everything else has been discussed, I'll just suggest
two minor editorial tweaks:

* Champion, Mike <Mike.Champion@SoftwareAG-USA.com> [2004-01-09 14:12-0500]
[..]
> 1.6 Service Oriented Architecture
[..]

For clarity reasons, saying what makes SOAP no longer an acronym is
worth it IMO, replacing:

| "SOAP" is no longer an acronym

by:

| SOAP Version 1.2 doesn't define "SOAP" as an acronym anymore

I would add the following:

| When using the optional SOAP RPC Representation,

> - Service Oriented Architecture Protocol: A SOAP message represents the
> information needed to invoke a service or reflect the results of a service
> invocation, and contains the information specified in the service interface
> definition.  

I would maybe add:

| In the general case, ...

to balance with the previous case. Since I believe this is the general
case, as well as our preferred use, I would maybe list it first, too.

Regards,

Hugo
