Re: [xml-dev] XML spec and XSD

I agree, that XSD spec has been quite mammoth and functionally
complex. That's the only aspect, I see XSD being different from most
of other W3C specs.

From functional point of view, I don't think XSD doesn't work. So many
numerous XML applications currently used XSD.

I don't think, there is anything wrong with the basic core/philosophy
of XSD. I guess, some of users who don't like XSD generally, it's
probably because of it's huge size, and steep learning curve.
I believe, XSD also get's functionally better with the upcoming 1.1 release.

Pls see my previous remarks :)

I agree. That's true for any endeavors we get engaged in :)
