I've assumed (from a distance) based on statements that use phrases like
"upward compatibility" and "easy transition" that the functionality
provided by RELAX was a subset of that provided by XML Schema.  However,
I haven't found anything in the latter comparable to the attribute- 
sensitive content models supported by RELAX.  Is this because XML Schema
doesn't have such a feature, or just because it's harder to find things
in the more densely-worded Schema documentation (or perhaps just because
I'm not reading carefully enough)?
