Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: DSDs a new schema language supporting XSLT
DSD has specified as one of its goals: "... expressive power of DSDs should be close to that of XSLT ..." This raises the question of why not to use XSLT directly, now that we have the <xsl:message> construct (a document is valid if and only if applying the XSLT "schemasheet" does not invoke any <xsl:message> calls). Admittedly DSD's syntax is nicer, but it isn't clear to me that the same effect can't be achieved with a "standard schema template library" for XSLT. Such library could provide services for "schemasheets" - for example, some sort of regular expression support. In the worst case, maybe adding a small number of basic constructs to XSLT for this purpose might be required; isn't this better then inventing a whole new language?
