   XML Schema and Chessboards

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

For some reason the archives are giving me an internal error so I can't
search. I did a mild Google at the subjects but didn't find anything
directly useful.

My problem is that I have to/want to create a Schema for a chessboard in all
it's glory. that is the actual board, the co-ordinates (and if at all
possible the rules for the pieces to move).

Now, the board is as deterministic as they come, so as far as I understand
this would be little more than trivial with something like RelaxNg (I don't
speak it but I understand it's RexExp based) but after about two years of
not touchng XML in any form I'm "slightly" at loss as how to solve this
problem in Schema, which is the only one I have used before.

Assume I'm an idiot when it comes to logic, but the semantics I can dig from
memory somehow.

I suppose I could (sigh) implement a brute force method, but I can't see
that as the cutest way of getting about it.

I'll be starting working on it in a few hours, so I thought of getting a
head start and asking you if you haveany comments on pitfalls and so forth.

Thank you in advance. I've been listening here now for more than a year.
Feels nice to be able to ask a question that might NOT be simple ABC, if it
is, I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
