The Schema for Schemas does one or two things that user-written schemas aren't allowed to do, like defining new primitive types. A schema processor will therefore only be able to perform validation using the S4S if it recognizes it as being privileged. I had to make a few tweaks to the Saxon schema processor to ensure that this worked, but it works now. However, you get much stronger validation of a schema by compiling it than you get by validating it against the S4S, so the question is a little academic. Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
