Hi Tim,

This suggestion makes complete sense. It is because we simply append new
strings to enumerated types and do not do an alpha re-sort.

If you would like to take the current 1.2 schema file and make the suggested
changes and send it to me via email, I will review the changes and post the
updated schema. 

I do appreciate comment and offer of assistance.

Subject: [LandXML] Enumerated Type List Order in LandXML 1.1 & 1.2

Distinguished LandXML Members,
I have two suggestions for the LandXML 1.2 schema, while it is still in
draft form :
1/ Alphabetically sort the Enumerated Type definitions in the LandXML 1.1
and 1.2 schema files (*.xsd) ?
Some of these enumerated type element represent jurisdictional data.
While it is quite easy to navigate these definitions with an XML editor,
such as XmlSpy, it becomes a little more awkward (and annoying) to find them
inside a text editor as they are only partially sorted.
For example, "dataFormatType" is listed before "connectionType", which is
listed before "addressType".
I will volunteer to sort this portion of the schema file and resubmit to the
schema maintainer.
2/ Add "annotation" elements to all enumerated types and other elements of
The missing "annotation" text could be delegated to the original
contributror(s), rather than the schema maintainer.
Comments ? Thoughts ?
