RE: relax ng public list?
I followed the link but didn't find the conspiracy theorist quote. Dare makes a case. They have a big framework with lots of applications using XML Schema and haven't digested all of it. A topic for a separate reply. Some people don't choose their tools. Some like the tools they have. I am habituated to opening the text editor to work with markup in any form until it proves too tedious to do so. W3C Schema isn't that tedious, but a good editor helps. By contrast, to do much that is large and efficient in X3D, an editor is a must-have for me but I know a few folks who managed VRML97 without one. So you are right about the complexity, but add to that, the opacity of the content regardless of the encoding. Real time 3D files are full of number triples, so human readable and human comprehensible aren't quite the same thing. len From: ari@c...

A GUI vs. text, as with any different-level-of-abstraction level symbolic systems, is a tradeoff between ease and control. RELAX NG doesn't have enough complexity to make giving up control worth the marginal added ease for many people (no more than a speculation, again). I'm sure someone somewhere wrote a GUI to edit /etc/fstab, but I don't see a wide acceptance. > why shouldn't VS enable one > to select the schema language?

Again, I think people who do "WS the VS way" are not the kind of people who appreciate an elegant tool for a more civilized age.
