Re: Comment: document title


There are two attributes that are defined which can be used independent 
of each other. xmlmime:acceptedMediaTypes attribute is a schema 
annotation attribute and can only be used in XML schema. But 
xmlmime:contentType attribute can be used independent of the XML schema 
and indicates the media type/content type of the binary element content 
in an XML document.

Given this, do you still think that the title is confusing?
