I had my wife, who spent a while in france but knows nothing about XML 
schemas, look at your translation.   Here is an alternate translation:


I am allowing myself to send you a short note about document XML Schema 
tome 0 : Introduction available at URL.:http: etc.

In chapter 2.2 one can read as (just after the definition of the type of 
USAddress) €œ The outcome of this definition is that every instance of 
this element in the instance (for example shipTo of poster po.xml) should 
be made up of five elements and one attribut.€

And again in the same chapter 2.2 (just after the definition of the type of 
€œThe elements shipTo and billTo can equally have the attribut of country 
which is part of the definiton of USAddress.€

In the first case shipTo MUST have the attribut, in the second case, shpTO 
CAN have the attribute. There is a real difference in meaning (I am looking 
at the English version, and we have there the same ambiguity)
