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

Theoretically yes if the validation was a subset of Schematron
capabilities and if the validation was considered to be authoritative
- a complete validation of the XML format -  but basically the correct
answer would be it wouldn't be worth doing because any single
Schematron validation is not likely to provide all XML structures
allowed in a format. Schematron usage is generally to validate the
parts that need validating. As an example consider if I wanted to
validate an Invoice calculation model, that could be done via a
Schematron with XPath 2.0 quite easy, but it certainly couldn't be
usable to generate a structure.
