You probably mean Trang rather than Jing :) ...

It is weird that Trang doesn't support the other way round and also that
we do not have more tools to do this translation since it is relatively

The MSV tool is fine but the RELAX NG that it generates is not very
human readable.

I have written a XSLT transformation that did a very decent job for a
specific project a couple of years ago. It did support advanced features
such as imports, includes, redefinitions, derivations, substitution
groups and even using xsi;type attributes for content models explicitly
defined as abstract but isn't generic enough to be used in the wild.

Maybe I should try to finish this job and publish it!

Of course, that would be easier if I could get a sponsor to finance this
effort :-) ...
