Elliotte,

Some time ago (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-schema- 
comments/2007JulSep/0087.html) you reported a problem in the text
of the last call draft of XSD 1.1 Structures, namely the !! in
the text

     The purpose of XML Schema Definition Language: Structures is
     to define the nature of !! and their component parts, provide
     an inventory of XML ...

The problem was pointed out by others as well and the issue is
tracked as bug 5137 in the W3C's public Bugzilla instance
(http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=5137).

This is to let you know that we have now closed bug 5137.

After a long period of believing we had solved the problem
(because the test versions the editors generated came out right,
with the words "XSD schemas" in place of !!), and then realizing
we hadn't solved it, but being unable to understand the cause,
we have now actually resolved the issue in the production system
that led to the corrupt text.  (The short description is:
inadvisable use of buggy Perl code.)

Thank you for pointing out the issue.
