Re: Documenting XML Dialects With Instance Documents
The schematron-report tool creates a two-pane linked view to a document. The errors are in one pane: double click and the other pane will jump to the correct place. This is availble open source on the web, and in free Topologi's Schematron Validator. You could invert the logic so that matching contexts are located. The general jumping framework owes itself to David Carlisle. I guess you are wanting to go the other way: select a node and find out which patterns match. I don't know of any existing tool that goes this way round yet for Schematron, however it is just a matter of seeing whether a node matches a context path and satisifes some xpath expressions.

We will publish schemas on the rddl page, and publish a sample instance document for illustrative purposes. There is a bit of a semantic gap for the reader between the schemas and instance document. Examplotron isn't quite what I have in mind (and it targets Relax, while we prefer XML Schema & Schematron). What I am looking for is a reusable way to create annotated instance documents. As the user navigates the annotated document they see schema rules which apply and some natural language documentation as well. I could see implementing this as a document which has pointers to or fragments of the instance document and pointers to the relevant schemas bits. > -----Original Message----- > From: Dare Obasanjo [mailto:dareo@m...] > Sent: Tuesday, March 25, 2003 3:00 PM > To: Doug Ransom; Xml-Dev@Lists.
