Thanks for the reply.

Unfortunately i admit I'm still confused.  Having B's block='extension' just
means that substitute groups of B can't have an extended type of B.  This has no
bearing on its relationship with R.  R and B are both the Element Declarations
already obtained after checking that they were validly substituted for (say) Q
and A respectively.
What is the link from B to R with the block attribute?

thanks again,
