why are you combining xml and xml schemas -- people using XML does *not*
imply they will use XML Schemas.
XML Schemas, to the best of my knowledge, has been the most controversial
topic, so I think saying that XML implies XML Schema is not correct. I
think these are the mistakes we (especially the more knowledgeable and
experienced people) should try to avoid.
