           Summary: lexical space of unsigned types needs clarification
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-schema-
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSD Part 2: Datatypes
        AssignedTo: cmsmcq@w3.org

The prose of the spec and the schema for schemas are at odds with each
other for all of the unsigned numeric types.  The prose says the
lexical forms of these types contain nothing but digits, but the
schema for schemas defines no pattern outlawing signs.

Either a pattern should be added, or the prose should be changed.

The implementations I've checked mostly follow the schema for
schemas; if this is true for other implementations as well, then
the prose should be changed, both in 1.0 and in 1.1.
