Re: [xml-dev] Is Schematron (using XPath 2.0) functionally a superset of XML Schemas?

I think that is dependent on an application being written that uses
Schematron to do datatype binding.

One of the differences between Schematron and XML Schema is that with
XML Schema you are assured (sort of) that your 'objects' have the
complete structure provided. Whereas in Schematron you do not have
this assurance. I think however that in a language like JavaScript
getting around this difficult would be easy, and in a language like C#
it would be horrendous.

I think that depends on the editor implementing it surely?

Actually also on the large 1 GB documents I guess there is an
implementation out there, if you run the implementation through the
DataPower XML Accelerator or something like that
http://www-306.ibm.com/software/integration/datapower/xa35 maybe IBM
should focus on that in their marketing. :)
