The reason I would like to do this is because I am hoping to conveniently create an XPath expression by dragging an element from one XML document into another XML document that I am editing, without necessarily creating a style sheet. The Xpath Query editor does not help me here because that can only refer to elements in the CURRENT document, not to those in another XML document.
Some background: I am looking for a tool to create Schematron rules. The rules use Xpath expressions to reference a source document but the Schematron file is not a style sheet so I cannot use the XSLT editor.
I need a productivity tool to create the Schematron rules and validate the syntax and the expressions in them. It would be even better if I could create Xpath expressions by dragging from an XML schema.
So this is not about running Schematron validation itself, we have software to do that.
