[xml-dev] Relax NC, was: XML spec and XSD

To my way of thinking, the compact notation and relative simplicity is what
makes RNC/G extremely attractive.  I'm actually really glad it doesn't solve
your problem, Douglass!  No offense, but if it did, it would be as complex
as XSD.  I guess that's just to say that they seem to occupy different

In my first project using Relax, I was able to write schemas for my fairly
complex documents after reading documentation (James Clark's excellent
tutorial http://www.relaxng.org/compact-tutorial-20030326.html) for only
about an hour.  Admittedly my problems were much simpler than the ones you
describe - only simple inheritance schemes using extension (adding
additional elements and attributes in the subtype), but what was great was I
didn't have to become an expert to do it, and all my colleagues: programmers
and customers (content editors), are able to read the schemas with almost no
training at all.
