Thanks! I have now fixed the schema to remove the 'datatype' attribute from
the <alias> element and removed <aliases> as a child of <api>.

Hi John,

Type can be removed in this context, assuming alias is always a child of a

We had a case where alias was effectively external to class, and that is
where we needed the type element, but I think we can accomplish that case
with what we have here.

Hi Ingo,
Another question.

ScriptDoc XML shows <aliases> as a child of <class>. The <alias> element
has two attributes, 'name' and 'type'. What do these attributes mean? For

<class type="Foo.Bar.XXX.Abc">
<alias name="NiceName" type="???"/>

It seems like 'type' is unnecessary because the alias is referring to the
ancestor <class> element. Am I missing something?

Also, can <aliases> external to a <class> element?
