As much as I resisted it in the early working groups for various reasons, I find myself agreeing with the position that it is good to have formal definitions for both wrll-formed and validated information. I had worked in that mode in the IDE/AS, IADS and GE systems, but the notion wasn't formally expressed. I like ISO 8879 DTDs mainly because they are for me, much easier to read and use to parse in my head. As I implement more with relational systems and use the tables to store the property sets of both schemata, properties of schemata as well as instances, I think I have more insight now into why people want multiple schema types even without the obvious extensions such as inheritance. nodes is nodes is nodes. len xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
