The definition of equality is in the W3C XML Schema Datatypes recommendation at http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/#equal and states "* for any a and b in the *value space*, either a is equal to b, denoted a = b, or a is not equal to b, denoted a != b * there is no pair a and b from the *value space* such that both a = b and a != b * for all a in the *value space*, a = a * for any a and b in the *value space*, a = b if and only if b = a * for any a, b and c in the *value space*, if a = b and b = c, then a = c * for any a and b in the *value space* if a = b, then a and b cannot be distinguished (i.e., equality is identity) Note that a consequence of the above is that, given *value space* A and *value space* B where A and B are not related by *restriction* or *union*, for every pair of values a from A and b from B, a != b." The last sentence seems to imply that in your example both types are equal. -- PITHY WORDS OF WISDOM When in doubt, ignore it.
