I find the distinction much less clear -- a pure schema is a
specification for producing a truth value; a schema that adds
information (such as default attribute values in a DTD) is a
specification for producing a transformation and a truth value; a
stylesheet is a specification for producing visual or aural (or
perhaps, tactile) output.  They certainly seem like the same general
kind of thing, at least to my eyes.

All the best,
