Re: [xml-dev] XML dictionary - second try

Would you mind sharing you XML schema ? I am not asking for the XSLT 
thing because that is quite hard to do - I will do that myself.

I am looking to see other points of view regarding this Q&A thing. Your 
schema would provide an alternative point of view.
