Dear XML editor,

Below is a comment on the Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 (Second
Edition). I hope this is useful.


Sincerely,

Mike McCaleb




Problem: Empty comments, "/*  */", are located in several grammar rules
throughout the document. These comments add nothing to the specification
and may distract or confuse the reader.

Proposed Solution: Remove the empty comments in the following rules: 24,
28, 28a, 31, 43, 49, 50, 62, and 63.
