   Migration to Schema

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Sorry if this has been asked before, if so a pointer in the right direction 
would be very useful!

In the move to XML Schema we will be supporting documents that have been 
generated using a DTD, many documents. How can we ease the pain of migration 
to Schema?

Specifically I am thinking that a document will now not contain a DOCTYPE, 
but each node within a document could potentially have a schema definition, 
therefore the instance documents will be subtly different. Unfortunately our 
customers will not ALL move to Schema, the one big bang scenario, so both 
old and new documents will be floating around the ether for some time to 

Are there any other pitfalls, lessons to be learnt, pearls of wisdom from 
migration to Schema that people could share? Thanks for any help
