An interesting idea.  All schema languages known to me are weak in
supporting mixed content; even RNG, which is the strongest, cannot
express this constraint.  (I don't really know Schematron: can it
cope?)

It also turns out to be a hard problem to say what "Dutch characters"
are.  Even English has corner cases like co÷perate and fašade.
