Minor error in XML Schema Description

Thanks for providing this data.

Being quite pedantic I just noticed that the schema document has the entry:

rating_name: Name of rating based on index value (Very good, Good, Fair, Poor, Very poor) [INT as STRING]

I believe this should be [STRING].

Another entry to review is:

measurementhour: hour measurement taken (HH) [STRING]

Perhaps this should be [INT as STRING]?

I hope this helps.

Ian Hogan.
