Since your conclusion is based on your assumptions, which you yourself say are based on conjecture, it's hard to respond meaningfully. I don't have good statistics on this, but I sure do see a lot more schemas in the real world than you seem to. Most of the applications I see that need datatypes together with XML are using XML Schema for this. Most of these applications use simple schemas, basically the "DTD+Datatypes" subset, though there are also quite a few uses of groups and some other features. Database applications are an important class of applications where datatypes matter, and it's no accident that database vendors are strongly behind XML Schema. Does anybody have real data on the market penetration of XML Schema? I think that vendor support for XML Schema is clear, but if Adam is right, that's irrelevant. Vendors seem to believe that people are actually using XML Schema, too. Are they right? Do we have real evidence on this question? Jonathan
