I think I have found an error in the XML 1.0 recommendation (and it's
not listed in the latest errata).

The grammar for Element-content models (productions 47-50) seems to be
ambiguous. The input

'(' cp ')'

matches both [49] and [50]. This can be fixed by replacing the * with
an + in one of the productions. I suggest changing [49] because I think
it makes more sense for one object to be a sequence than to be a
