RE: [xml-dev] Victory has been declared in the schema wars ...


A point for X3D that most of us know: if you don't care about XSD, the X3D
engines do their own application parsing and validation just as they did for
VRML97.  That this obvious solution is used by so many applications, we
usually forget to mention it.  Someone did for HTML5.   That is possibly one
side effect of the heaviness of XSD.  Where speed matters, it appears to be
a non-starter.  That performance is a matter of checking things other than
syntax and type on load and that the parse is where that gets done does not
make the heaviness of XSD less a deterrent.

DTDs were used by authors.  They were seldom used for load time checking
other than because SGML required it.  Nothing about XSD or RELAX changed
