XML schema languages operate on significant subsets of XML data models. For instance, there are probably an infinite amount of XQuery expressions that cannot be described by any existing XML schema especially not W3C XML Schema which it uses as the basis of its type system. Conflating XML schema languages and data models belies an ignorance of the topic at hand. -- PITHY WORDS OF WISDOM To err is human, to forgive is against department policy.
