Thanks Michael.  I appreciate the reply.  I finally 
logged into Biztalk and have begun to read Dan Rogers' 
mail on these and other subjects.  That should make 
me a bit better informed and save some bandwidth 
here on XML-DEV.  I've had to maintain markup like 
a hobby for a few years and am rusty.

Again, XDR looks good for getting started.  I suspect 
that as enterprises begin to work toward industry-wide 
shareable definitions, the move to XML Schema becomes 
more imperative but that until then, XDR works for putting 
one foot in front of the other.  So far, my main problem 
is that I can write a DTD without slowing down and have 
to get used to this brave new world of property sets 
for everything.  

Other than IE5 not actually doing full validation, 
this works.  The documentation may be a little misleading 
with regards to that, or I misperceived the intent. 
We jury-rigged a validation app using the MSXML object 
and that works fine.

Dear Len

In addition to Andrew's mail, let me add the following.

It is safe to say that we are currently not planning to get rid of XDR
(assuring backwards compatibility) and plan to provide support for
XML-Schema and a migration path from XDR to XML Schema. This is also what we
tell our customers.

This is xml-dev, the mailing list for XML developers.
