RE: XML Schema to relaxNG xslt

relaxng xslt
Seems this argument is going to make the rounds every couple of weeks or so.
The arguments (and contestants) are too predictable anymore. I'm still
waiting for the definitive answer on why DTD's are not the answer. Seems to
me they are damn good at modeling information systems. I'm just a lowly
business major and I can understand them and model with them. Ooops,
probably just answered my own question. Why use something simple when
something 5000 times more obtuse will do the job? Sheesh!

Take Care,
