Hi,

My apologies for resurrecting what may be a dead issue, but I have
searched and not been able to find any resolution or explanation
offered in response to the question as to why, within schema
complexTypes, attribute declarations are required to occur only
_subsequent_ to content model definitions (when in instance documents
the _values_ occur in the opposite order).  Two relevant posts were:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-schema-comments/2000JulSep/0216.html

Was there a justification posted somewhere or included in the
specification
that I missed?

thanks,
