Resolution of CR-16

Dear James,

The W3C XML Schema Working Group has spent the last several weeks
working through the comments received from the public on the
Candidate Recommendation (CR) of the XML Schema specification. We
thank you for the comments you made on our specification during
our CR comment period, and want to make sure you know that all
comments received during the CR comment period have been recorded
in our CR issues list (

You raised the point registered as issue CR-...:
entity-declaration-in-doc: Entity-declared constraint

The constraint "ENTITY declared" should require a declaration for the entity
in the document, not in the schema.

The Schema WG discussed the issue you have raised and has determined it is
indeed a bug in our specification. The Schema WG will fix this error in the
XML Schema Proposed Recommendation as you suggest.

It would be helpful to us to know whether you are satisfied with the
decision taken by the WG on this issue, or wish your dissent from the
WG's decision to be recorded for consideration by the Director of
the W3C.
