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: In a sentence in Section 4.6 the use of "these" may be ambiguous.

Proposed Solution:

Change:

       All XML processors must recognize these entities whether they are
       declared or not.

to

       All XML processors must recognize this set of general entities
       whether the entities are declared or not.
