--- Comment #3 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
You are quite correct to observe that the traditional computer-science use of
the term "mantissa" has been criticized as being incorrect, and that purists
prefer "significand". I will check to see what the impact of a change here
might be.

XSD 1.0 uses "mantissa"; XSD 1.1 seems to get by without either term...
