I have some sympathy for this concern. Not convinced either way, yet.

Someday it would be The Right Thing to do to be able to display the
XSD and DTD as well. (That is, at least, what we agreed to do at the
2002 Council meeting, IIRC.) So at some point there would be a row of
4 buttons, one of which was "pressed". In the meantime, though,
you're right, it might be useful to say.
However, I'm concerned that the granularity is too fine. The reader
should be able to change the default for all declarations, rather
than having to click on each individually. Is that possible now? If
not, James & Sebastian, is it something that could be done in time?

Agreed. Kudos to Dot, James, Sebastian, and all the other Oxfordites
who have contributed.
The things that most urgently need work, IMHO, are the "Children"
section of the tagdocs, and the sectioning of the Macros and Classes
Speaking of which, as there have been 2 "agrees" and no dissension,
I've changed the name of Appendix C to "Datatypes and Other Macros".
