| You think RELAX NG has some special affinity for presentation?

To the exclusion of other types of structure, no. But I do think
relaxing the content model ambiguity rules makes building schemas for
document-oriented schemas really pleasant in RELAX NG.

And I think if you're doing schemas with lots of mixed content, you
probably aren't going to find it (as) easy to take advantage of the
"strong typing" features of XSD.

So RELAX NG becomes a pretty clearly superior choice.

                                        Be seeing you,
