Description Michael Rys 2005-05-13 23:14:00 UTC
The spec currently says in the casting section: "For xs:dateTime, xs:date and 
xs:time, the value returned is a seven-property tuple as explained in 10.1 
Date/time datatype values."

This is not really correct. The casting returns a value of the given type. The 
seven-property tuple is an internal representation that an implementation may 
or may not use. Please remove the paragraph.
