Hi folks,

We're using the JATS 1.2 Publishing suite and have tripped over a discrepancy
between the documentation and the schema:

We are using the private-char element to represent characters specific to our
organisation. Within the xref element, this element isn't allowed:
we are keen to hear any options you might have for including private-char with
in element.

The documentation says it can be contained in:
<addr-line>, <alternatives>, <alt-title>, <article-title>, <attrib>,
<award-id>, <bold>, <chapter-title>, <code>, <collab>, <comment>,
<compound-kwd-part>, <compound-subject-part>, <conf-theme>, <data-title>,
<def-head>, <disp-formula>, <element-citation>, <fixed-case>,
<funding-source>, <inline-formula>, <italic>, <label>, <license-p>,
<meta-value>, <mixed-citation>, <monospace>, <named-content>, <overline>, <p>,
<part-title>, <product>, <roman>, <sans-serif>, <sc>, <see>, <see-also>,
<sig>, <sig-block>, <source>, <std>, <strike>, <styled-content>, <sub>,
<subject>, <subtitle>, <sup>, <supplement>, <support-source>, <td>, <term>,
<term-head>, <textual-form>, <th>, <title>, <trans-source>, <trans-subtitle>,
<trans-title>, <underline>, <verse-line>

However the schema reports that it can only be contained in:
bold, fixed-case, italic, monospace, overline, roman, sans-serif, sc, strike,
underline, ruby, named-content, styled-content, sub, sup

So we'd like to get an understanding of the mismatch between the schema and
documentation and see if there's any recommended options.

Thanks for your help,
