The only way to grasp a W3C Schema is via a visualisation. You can stare at the text in Notepad until the cows come home without getting a feel for the model. This is a baaad thing. By contrast, with RelaxNG, tools are optional. Notepad is just fine for wrapping your head around what the schema means. Tools are good and useful but should be optional to understanding a schema language. Otherwise, the open systems, vendor/platform independence of the schema goes puff! Sean
