Title: Re: [xml-dev] XML Schema is not yet widespread??
I believe the thread started 11/01/2004 and was titled "Number of active public XML schemas".

Please see a thread on this exact topic in the semi-recent past (6 months ago?) in which various folks (including Henry Thomspon) described schemas that were found in various online repositories.

Is that % of all instances of documents in the wild, or a % of types
