   What a tangled web!!! XML and related specs

As a relative newbie to XML, I've been wading through the XML 1.0 spec and
related documents (notes, recommendations, etc.), mostly at the W3C site.
Boy,  am I confused!

I'm not only confused by the specific detail contents of the respective
documents, but perhaps more importantly, by the *relationship* of the
various docs to the others.  Does RDF extend or replace DTD as specified in
XML 1.0?  Is SOX an alternative to both DTD and RDF?  What about Namespace
and DCD?  For that matter, what about the recent XML Schema Requirements
Note?  I guess I'm hoping someone will provide a spec roadmap.
