First the minor editorial that I forget to include on the previously link.
The URL for the comments email address is the URL for the archives not a
mailto:www-xml-schema-comments@w3.org

Secondly, I want to provide some context that was missing on the
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-schema-comments/2000JanMar/0062.
html message from me that was a cross post from a discussion on
comp.text.xml.

The inflammatory title was from a virulent, emotional message that was
posted on comp.text.xml on 14 January that personally attacked the editors
by name and the working group by implication.  The thread has grown at this
time to about 25 posts, very few of which reflect the animousity of the
original message.

In my cross-posting to the comments archive, I quoted a fragment of a
message from Dean Roddey from that thread.  I ellipsed much of his message
since I was primarily writing in the comp.text.xml thread and used the
original comp.text.xml subject.  Without the context of the comp.text.xml
discussion, the imflammatory title and my use of Dean's name and excerpts of
his comments could very easily be misconstrued.  I do believe Dean's full
message is worth reading in the context of the comp.text.xml thread.

I apologize to both Dean and for anyone who misconstrued the excerpt in my
comment.

I also want to reiterate that the thread title and original inflamitory post
does not  reflect my position.  Though I still have some serious qualms with
certain aspects of the working draft, I'm encouraged by the progress in the
working drafts, appreciate the effort of the editors and working group and
hope that we will have something that everyone can support in the near
future.
