Re: MusicXML 2.0 XSD released
Hi Andrew and Michael, Thank you for the feedback on the MusicXML 2.0 XSD. I apologize for the delay in replying. I was attending and presenting at the International Conference on Music Information Retrieval (http://ismir2008.ismir.net) last week and got behind on my e-mail. The MusicXML 2.0 XSD carefully limits the global elements to the two document elements, and we do not want to change that. The top-level score, part, and measure types were made local since they alone do not generalize between the partwise and timewise formats. If these local type declarations cause a problem in practice, we can revisit this in a future version of the XSD. I suspect that most query applications will not be working with these high-level elements, but we will see how things evolve. There are indeed many types of validation that it would be nice to add using either Schematron or XSD 1.1 assertions. The XSD captures lots more of MusicXML's documented semantic rules than the DTD does, but assertions are needed to get to the next level of validation. This is another area of possible future work for the MusicXML XSD. Best regards, Michael Good Recordare LLC www.recordare.com
