Peter is correct, I forgot to change the
extensions in the file names for the Protege files:

   The xls file is another format that can help figure out what is 
intended.  I notice that the XLS file has associations not
in the xsd file.  But I haven't yet found the place where the class
hierarchies are indicated -- which class is supposed to be
a subclass of another.  Can anyone help me with this?
Also, I do see some things there that I'm not clear on.
For example, in the column H (Assoc Object Class) I see the term
"Shipment" without any qualifier term in the previous column.  But
I don't find "Shipment" by itself in any of the files I've looked at.
Should there be a "Shipment" class that is a parent of 
"OrderedShipment" and "ActualShipment"?  If so, is it specified
in some file?  Does every class with a qualifier term imply that
there is some parent class without the qualifier?    (04)

    The 92 entries transcribed were the "complexTypes" and if the
properties and associations of these are counted (as they would be
if one counted the lines in the xls file), there will be several
hundred, but I haven't tried counting. In fact I only find
about 60 complex types in the "normalized_components" xls file.
The "Reusable" xls file has 92 complexTypes and over 600
lines.  There is a lot of duplication between these two xls files.
Does anyone know the different functions of the two xls files?
Also, I can't find a "normalized components" xsd file.  Can anyone
say why the different formats have different sets of files?    (05)
