You might want to check out my XML Schema Compilation project at
SourceForge (http://sourceforge.net/projects/XSDComp) which uses XSLT to
convert XML Schema to a consise, fully evaluated form (all
includes/imports brought into one file, all references converted to
ID/IDREF pairs, etc).  I've definitely advanced my working copy beyond
what I've put in the CVS.  If you are interested after taking a look
around, I can update it.


I have had a brief look at your project at the URL you gave. It certainly 
looks interesting.

This is a topic in which I would expect growing interest over time.

I would certainly be interested to know when you have updated the file 
repository. I think it would also be appropriate to perhaps let the list know 
too. Perhaps not a huge number will be interested but I think it is important 
to use the list to assist those interested in a particular topic to make 
contact, perhaps simply with a view to sharing information or possibly future
