Wow! You're right!  I respectfully disagree with the standard, but it's 
what we must follow.  Nillable to me meant that it could have a null

can just check if it is or not. =shurg=  It's like those manuals that 
have "THIS PAGE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK"  written in them. ;)


For the schema processor the character content of <foo></foo> or <foo/>
is an empty string; with xsi:nil one defines it to be NIL. So there is a
significant difference, i.e. an empty string is different from NIL.
