Re: What are the characteristics of a good type system for XML

What fun: I have never heard anyone say XML Schemas pays too much attention to validation (compared to issues related to configuring DBMS and middleware!) Indeed, one of the points with DSDL, RELAX, Schematron etc is that WXS does not meet the mark for document validation, by providing to few bangs for too many bucks. Dare, what is the brokeness of WXS as you see it, especially that broken lens? Cheers Rick
