Description Michael Kay 2010-10-11 14:13:10 UTC
Microsoft test elemU015 uses the regular expression [ae-]x which is invalid according to the rules adopted in XSD 1.1.

I'm not sure whether we have decided this is also disallowed in XSD 1.0. At one stage I think we were considering retrofitting the whole regex appendix from XSD 1.1 to XSD 1.0.

bug #11125 against the spec is relevant
Comment 2 C. M. Sperberg-McQueen 2011-11-04 15:36:44 UTC
For what it's worth, my regex parser says this is legal both in the grammar of 1.0 1E and in that of 1.0 2E, and that no extra-grammatical rules in those specs render it illegal.  The output of the parser is:

Comment 3 Michael Kay 2011-11-04 16:23:24 UTC
Yes, I believe you are correct: according to the rules in the July 2011 CR, this regular expression is legal.
