Two questions, one sartorial, one specific:

	1. "Node-set" is proper, "Nodeset" is not, yes?
	2. In the following:


	   Is the node-set of <colors> strictly the children (e.g., 
	   <primary>, <secondary>) -- or is it children and their 
	   children, i.e., descendants, not just children?  I'm 
	   wanting to know exactly what I'm referring to when I say
	   "the node-set of 'x'" . . .  implicitly means what 
	   set of nodes?  To me, if <primary> and <secondary> are 
	   the node-set of <colors>, shouldn't the children of 
	   <primary> and <secondary> be as well?

Thank you for addressing this, I'm trying to get a very precise handle on
the prescribed and proscribed parameters of the nomenclature.
