           Summary: Fix for <!/comment> accidently (?) omitted from 2e
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: 1.0 only
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-0/#PO
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Primer: XSD Part 0
        AssignedTo: David_E3@VERIFONE.com
        ReportedBy: ht@inf.ed.ac.uk
         QAContact: www-xml-schema-comments@w3.org

The single most commonly spotted mistake in the Primer, namely

  <comment>Hurry, my lawn is going wild<!/comment>

[in 2 versions, both repeated, for a total of 4 occurrences]

was fixed in CVS early on, but for reasons I cannot now imagine/reconstruct
that change was lost at publication.  To see this, do the following [modified
appropriately for your directory structure]:

> cd .../XML/Group/xse/primer
> cvs update -p -r1.11 primer.xml | diff -bw .../WWW/TR/2004/REC-xmlschema-0-20041028/primer.xml

As you can see from the CVS Id lines near the top, 1.11 _is_ the version that
was pushed out for publication, but somehow the !comment line fixes were
reverted in the process.

Anyone think we can get away with fixing this in place?
