Re: [xml-dev] How to be nimble, agile in the face of changingtechnologies?

$EMPLOYER's practice is to write all schemas in RELAX NG (except for
some legacy DTDs), and convert them to XSD using Trang for delivery to
implementation groups.  We make sure that our sample documents are valid
against both schemas.

The RNG Converter at
http://java.net/downloads/msv/nightly/rngconv.20060319.zip can be used
to convert an XML Schema including all imports to a monolithic RELAX
NG grammar.  It does not preserve modularization, and ignores xsd:key,
xsd:keyref, and xsd:unique declarations.
