Hello:





I would like to thank you for the document XML Schema Part 0, I believe
that I finally have some grasp of this after reading it!





Much as I should leave it at that, I have of course a comment. In the
section of the document devoted to the example (the Purchase Order Schema,
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-0/#POSchema), you have typed Zip code as
decimal. I understand that it's just an example, but in my miniscule
experience that would lead to a disaster in a real application; for
example, the Zip code for Buckfield, Maine, 04220, would be returned as
4220 (and returned by the post office).





If I am sadly off base, I apologize in advance!





Best,





Ben
