Subject: Re: Datatype section

Joaquin Miller commends Betty Harvey on the list of data types; see
http://lists.ebxml.org/archives/ebxml-core/200101/msg00030.html. Of
course, we're all grateful to Betty for the compendium, and hope we can
build out from there.

But Joaquin refers to "a few items that are a bit deeper than text
format and conversions."  Since the list "comes from a draft standard
submitted to ISO, perhaps this is not the place to mention these items.
If it is not, please delete this message now."

Dear Joaquin:

Now you've got me:  Whatever "ISO" list are you referring to?  And why
can't you mention it? In any case,  Betty has clearly indicated that the
Global Datatypes come directly from the XML Schema Specification (XML
Schema Part 2: Datatypes, W3C Candidate Recommendation, 24 October
2000), available at http://www.w3.org/TR/.  What's this got to do with
the ISO?  If you mean ISO 8601:1988  Representations of dates and times,
which some of the Schema Date, Time, and Duration data types are built
upon, it's freely available at: http://www.iso.ch/markete/8601.pdf.
How's the newer TC 154 draft of this substantially different from the
standard itself?
