RE: XML Schema to relaxNG xslt
Depending on what you want to model, DTDs may be all you need. For others Relax NG, XSD, etc are not enough. I think I give a good enough reason as to the limitations of DTDs in this paper I wrote last year http://www.25hoursaday.com/StoringAndQueryingXML.html Read the section entitled "Structuring XML: DTDs and XML Schemas" -- PITHY WORDS OF WISDOM Any philosophy that can be put into a nutshell belongs there.
