   RE: [xml-dev] relax ng public list?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

It was John's posts on XML-Dev that made me look at 
RELAX and recommend it to the Web3DC as an alternative 
for the existing X3D DTD and schema.  Given enough 
demand, it might be done.

While some might say they don't have enough time in the 
day to process all of the messages posted here, others 
might say it is easier to quickly ascertain the importance 
here than to manage and sort a dozen separate lists. 
Once RELAX has a large enough following and desktop 
support, then it is likely that a separate list with 
it's own infrastructure would be useful and efficient.

I suppose it comes down the demographic of the target 
of the discussion topic.

Very much on topic: we are about XML technologies, of which RNG is
definitely one;
it's about validation of XML documents, quite independently of whether a
particular RNG schema is expressed in XML or not.

I agree that this would be a Good Thing, and if someone will supply infra
structure, I'd be happy to answer newbie questions.
