Hi Folks,

Consider this element declaration:

      <element name="Foo" type="string" />

What is the proper way of expressing the relationship between Foo and the string data type?

    (a) Foo has the string data type.

    (b) Foo has a string data type.

    (c) Foo is of the string data type.

    (d) Foo is a string data type.

    (e) Foo has a data type that is a string.
 
    (f) Foo is a string.

    (g) Something else.

/Roger
