Right, they claim you can assign any (XML-) schema you want, and if you can
write the right stylesheet for it, you can edit it in a somewhat wysiwyg
manner.  I say "somewhat" because they have some machinery for letting you
add new elements according to what the schema allows, which you do not have
to do with their native format.  I believe that you can violate the schema
and still create and save a document, too.
