           Summary: R-196: Add health warning on use of whitespace facet on

          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW

This was formerly RQ-127.

We request that a health warning be added at the most appropriate place in the 
XML Schema spec, to warn schema users against specifying whiteSpace="replace" 
or "collapse" on elements (and even attributes) meant to contain anything but 
highly constrained text such as lists, as it will not do what they think 
("unexpected"!) and will in fact prevent later processing steps from doing the 
Right Thing.
