           Summary: EP-15: simplify the way lexical and canonical mappings
                    are referred to from the text
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: 1.1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSD Part 2: Datatypes
        AssignedTo: cmsmcq@w3.org
        ReportedBy: cmsmcq@w3.org

The use of boxes with name, argument structure, and so on in the
sections of Datatypes where the lexical and canonical mappings are
supplied is cumbersome.  The information is completely predictable
in virtually all respects:  the lexical mapping maps from a literal
to a value of the appropriate type, and the canonical mapping
goes the other way.  The only piece of information in the box is
the name of the function defined in the appendix.

This proposal suggests changing the discussions of the lexical
and canonical mappings for each type to make the references
in a lighter-weight fashion:  eliminate the box and repetitive
details, and retain only the function name, hyperlinked to the
definition.
