		Hello XML editor !

		I study with great interest the version 1.0 text of XML
		in the hope to convince some ANSI committee 
		(Think it is called S22 on Communication of Hearing Related
		-i.e. Audiological Measurements) that it should use XML
		in its ANSI drafts !

		While doing this I have two suggestions:
		1) Please insert a heading Style of VSs  and WFCs 
		2) please number them for easier reference !

		MS office 2000 incl. Word 2000 opens HTML
		documents and edits them (as you probably know)
		and that is very convenient. But some styles
		come out not very well - Like the bold typeface
		you have selected for VCs and WFCs. It becomes
		s t r e t c h e d because Word interprets it as "normal
		bread text" (as we say in Danish) and justifies it !

		My second suggestion is to number the VCs and WFCs
		for easier reference ! (se the example below !)

		A markup declaration is an element type declaration
<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml> , an attribute-list declaration
<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml> , an entity declaration
<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml> , or a notation declaration
<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml> . These declarations may be contained in
whole or in part within parameter entities <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml> ,
as described in the well-formedness and validity constraints below. For
fuller information, see "4. Physical Structures
<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml> ".
Document Type Definition	
'<!DOCTYPE' S <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml>  Name

VC28: Root Element Type <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml>  ]

elementdecl <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml>  | AttlistDecl

VC29: Proper Declaration/PE Nesting <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml>  ]

WFC29: PEs in Internal Subset <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml>  ]

The markup declarations may be made up in whole or in part of the
replacement text <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml>  of parameter entities
<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml> . The productions later in this specification
for individual nonterminals (elementdecl <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml> ,
AttlistDecl <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml> , and so on) describe the
declarations after all the parameter entities have been included
<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml> .
Validity Constraint VC28: Root Element Type
The Name <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml>  in the document type declaration
must match the element type of the root element
<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml> . 
Validity Constraint VC29: Proper Declaration/PE Nesting
Parameter-entity replacement text <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml>  must be
properly nested with markup declarations. That is to say, if either the
first character or the last character of a markup declaration (markupdecl
<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml>  above) is contained in the replacement text
for a parameter-entity reference <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml> , both must
be contained in the same replacement text. 
Well-Formedness Constraint WFC29: PEs in Internal Subset
In the internal DTD subset, parameter-entity references
<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml>  can occur only where markup declarations can
occur, not within markup declarations. (This does not apply to references
that occur in external parameter entities or to the external subset.) 

Now - I hope this email comes out right to you. If it is all garbage please
contact me and I shall
try and see if I can somehow reformat !

I just used cut and paste from MS Word 2000 to Outlook 2000 !
