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


I use the schema also for its data-description 
features: to know which element/attrs are allowed,
datatype etc, before validation, 
to _produce_ instances, that then I will validate.

I think that it would be hard to 
get the same description from a list of xpaths,
or at least I wouldn't know where to start.

Is it possible to go back from the schematron
to the w3c schema ?
