I can only speak for a few programming type geeky people from the stone
ages. Ignore if you wish, I'm used to it.

To me, whatever technology is in Relax-NG, it seems to have an image
problem. It isn't clear to a stone-age man what it can accomplish or
what it does.

So I can understand why it might be hard to get commercial support. 

A year or so ago, I tried to find out what it was. But came to no

I'm still in the dark about a lot Relax-NG and its benefits and still
don't know. RSS I can kinda grasp, XSD ok yeah.. RelaxNG nfi

Maybe it just needs some nicer graphics, better tutorials or something
like that. Some clearer web pages....

It seems to be a communication issue rather than a technical one, that's
what I'm suggesting. Something that there is ample opportunity to
improve on if you wished.
