Dear Mr. Canning:

The W3C XML Schema Working Group has spent the last several months
working through the comments received from the public on the last-call
draft of the XML Schema specification.  We thank you for the comments
you made on our specification during our last-call comment period, and
want to make sure you know that all comments received during the
last-call comment period have been recorded in our last-call issues
list (http://www.w3.org/2000/05/12-xmlschema-lcissues).

Among other issues, you raised the point registered as issue LC-9,
which asks how to restrict a string to characters in a particular
character repertoire such as ISO 8859-1.

We believe that you have received, from Paul Biron and from myself, an
explanation of how to go about this task (if you wish to refresh your
memory, the responses are recorded in the issues list at
http://www.w3.org/2000/05/12-xmlschema-lcissues#asciiString).  The
short form is: you use a subtype of string defined with the help of
a pattern facet.

It would be helpful to us to know whether you are satisfied with the
decision taken by the WG on this issue, or wish your dissent from the
WG's decision to be recorded for consideration by the Director of
the W3C.

Thank you,

-C. M. Sperberg-McQueen
