Description Priscilla Walmsley 2005-05-12 22:55:01 UTC
The description of the deep-equal function says "They may also differ in their 
parent, their base URI, and their IDs."  I assume by "IDs" you mean "node 
identities".  If so, I think the term "node identities" should be used as it 
is more correct and clear. 

If, on the other hand, it means IDs in the sense of attributes of type xs:ID, 
this should be stated more clearly, and the algorithm should be modified to 
check for this.

The intended meaning is IDs and/or IDREFS.  The wording has been changed to make
this clear.  Decided by the joint QT WGs on 5/18/2005.
