xml extensibility
Dear all,

Have you noticed that when you give XML a DTD, it
stops becoming extensible?

We seem to forget that XML isn't really a language -
it's a meta-language; a means of setting up (sometimes
proprietary) new languages.

Which all seems to favour some kind of xml+ MIME type
for XML applications; to show that these new languages
are XML based, but have a DTD.

Of course, the saving grace may be XML Schemas; these
will allow XML to be 'valid' documents, but ones that
are still extensible.

Problem: I wonder if it's possible to transform both
XSLT & XML Schemas with XSLT?

- Probably yes because they are valid XML, but can you
imagine the carnage/innovation this could cause...


Kindest Regards,
Sean B. Palmer
