Description Kevin Jones 2002-07-12 12:52:43 UTC
Not sure if this should be posted here. The documention for the import tag 
says that the type of varReader is string, the description says Reader.
Comment 1 Pierre Delisle 2002-07-12 17:22:40 UTC
The description for "varReader" says:
  Name of the exported scoped variable for the resource's content. 
  The type of the scoped variable is Reader.

There are therefore two things here: 
  1. The value of attribute varReader, which is a String
     representing the name of the exported scoped variable
  2. The type associated with the exported scoped variable,
     which is Reader.

So when the spec says:
  "It is also possible to make the content of the resource available 
   in two different ways: as a String object (attribute var), or as 
   a Reader object (attribute varReader)."

both var and varReader specify the names of exported scoped variables
(specified as strings), but the type of these exported variables 
are respectively String and Reader.
