I recently gave a presentation on XML schema languages.  Due to the recent

presentation starts with a brief description of XML. It then discusses why 
you might want XML schema languages, their basic syntax, and what the major 
differences between the four existing languages (XSchema, DCD, SOX, and 
XML-Data) are.  It ends with a summary of what I think a schema language 
should have today and what languages I think you should use for what 

You can find the presentation at:


Warning: The notes are a bit rough and sometimes rather opinionated.  Feel 
free to send me comments and complaints.
