   RE: [xml-dev] Why datatypes?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

schematron uses a different paradigm from RELAX NG and XML-Schema.

however, schematron uses this paradigm for somewhat the same purpose as
what RELAX NG and XML-Schema do.

but I think there recently have been efforts that schematron actually
complements what is done by RELAX NG and XML-Schema -- that is very good.

I have not followed schematron closely but I think what is really
interesting contribution from schematron is the paradigm by which it does
things -- the applications where it is useful, I am not sure.

Again, if someone could provide some application scenarios and how
schematron helps with some technical detail, I would be very glad.

thanks and regards - murali.
