Dear Allen:

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

You raised the point registered as issue CR-55:
"Restore 0 and 1 as Boolean values"
At the Schema WG meeting last week the WG decided to accede to
your request and add 0 and 1 as legal lexical representations
for the boolean datatype. This still leaves open the canonical
representation for boolean.  Please let us know if you have
a preference for {0,1} or {false, true}.

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.


All the best, Ashok
