Thanks Ashok

Unfortunately my company is not a member of W3C and so I don't have access to this area.

I did, however, take a look at http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-xquery-20021115/#N40238D as suggested by Dare Obsanjo which was somewhat helpful. This led me in a vague sort of way to the XPath 1.0 spec since it appeared to leverage the equality operator from that specification. 

If you could forward me the text from the relevant part you reference I would be most grateful.

Many thanks

Hugh Wallis

Take a look at the XPath/XQuery functions and operators spec available at:


This considers equality of all the XML Schema types.  We can have a chat after you have had a

chance to look at the spec.

All the best, Ashok

Per Henry Thompson's request on xmlschema-dev@w3.org please find attached for your consideration an e-mail and paper regarding this subject that I prepared for the latest release of the XBRL specification.
