This project was undertaken to complete a "Group Project" module at a                                                          
university. We just finished and do not plan to continue working on this [at                                                   
least in the new future]. However, yes, the base of this project could probably                                                
be extended to cover XQuery and XSLT.                                                                                          
The schema support in our implementation is currently very limited, although the                                               
code is fully designed to work with schema.

Yes Saxon is indeed a great product. The Schema Aware version of Saxon is                                                      
commercial and needs a license, whereas the version which is free and opensource                                               
[saxon B], is not schema aware.                                                                                                
To the best of our knowledge, we produced the first OPEN SOURCE schema aware                                                   
processor. Again, being a university project and having limited time, our                                                      
research was not extensive and we are not the most competent people in the XML                                                 
world, so the information we provide may not be totally correct.                                                               
However, we did our best =D
