following on from yesterday's email I have a further question for which I
can find not answer in the XML Schema specification documents ..

In section 3 and in Appendix C2 of the Data Types document the primitive
types ID, IDREF, ENTITY and QName (and its derived built-in type NOTATION)
are documented as being subject to the constraining facets minInclusive,
maxInclusive, maxExclusive and maxInclusive.  What does this mean?

Further, in the "Validation Rule" descriptions within sections 4.2.7 thru
4.2.10  for these constraining facets (i.e. minInclusive, maxInclusive,
maxExclusive and maxInclusive) the validation criteria is described for the
scenario when the value is numeric and when the value is date/time related
but there is no mention of the validation criteria when the value is any of
ID, IDREF, ENTITY and QName primitive data types.
