Re: [xml-dev] Micro XSD for Micro XML?

I recently put together a schema language for newbies that aims to be 
simple.  The idea was that an example of your XML data could be your schema. 
Chances are that alone wouldn't be rich enough, so you can then add 
annotations to it to better describe what you want.  For that reason I've 
called it "Annotated XML Example" or AXE.

At the moment it's very much a put-something-out-there-and-see-what-happens 
specification.  It's certainly not as powerful as full XSD.  But then part 
of its design goal is to say if you need the full power of XSD (or similar), 
then use XSD!

The current spec is at:


Maybe it'll provide someone with food for thought.
