CR-53 Response: Add built-in base64Binary and hexBinary types?

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-53:

Title: Add built-in base64Binary and hexBinary types?

Resolution: The working group decided to add both base64Binary and
hexBinary to the list of primitive types. Consequently, binary was removed
from the list.

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.


Aki Yoshida
