Re: XSD Schema : Standard APIs ?

Gudge & Mike, thanks for the pointers to the DOM Level 3 spec, i had a
read through this, and it does appear to cover the things i was
thinking about, however it appears to be too far off (time wise) to be
of any immediate use.

Michael, can you expand on your XQuery suggestion, and are there any
current XQuery implementations i could try something out with ?
