Subject: Re: Datatype section

Hello there,
    I agree Betty has done an excellent job in surfacing all these data

    BUT surely we must remember that any XML message only contains text
data either say ASCII or UNICODE etc. depending on the XML 'ISO' settings.

    This is why, for example, EDIFACT distiguishes only between alphanumeric
(fixed & variable length) and Numeric (fixed & variable length). It makes no
assumptions as to how this data will be 'converted' on a host machine, or
how the developer of a piece of end user software will implement these 'data

Perhaps folks would like to comment

Cheers, Phil Goatly.
