- Designing Schemas for B2B E-Commerce
As use of XML schemas grows, the potential for reuse expands. Alongside the Common Business Library (xCBL) Gregory highlighted
several other efforts worthy of a closer look. BizTalk provides a great repository of schemas, and RosettaNet is an excellent
source of information on process and data set analysis. However Gregory singled out ebXML as the activity most likely to yield
successful results and close the gap between the XML and EDI communities.
- XML Patterns
A site about designing good XML structure with patterns.
"... the BizTalk Framework, a set of guidelines for how to publish schemas in XML and how to use XML messages to easily integrate
software programs together in order to build rich new solutions."

- ebXML - Creating A Single Global Electronic Market
ebXML Mission: To provide an open XML-based infrastructure enabling the global use of electronic business information in an
interoperable, secure and consistent manner by all parties. About ebXML: The United Nations body for Trade Facilitation and
Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT) and the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) have
joined forces to initiate a worldwide project to standardize XML business specifications.
- eCo Framework
"The primary focus of CommerceNet's eCo Framework Project is to demonstrate the value of the integration of three common component-based
electronic commerce services. These services are semantic integration of multiple database types with multiple data constructs
and data libraries; trusted open registries; and agent-mediated buying."
- The XML Schema Site
"RELAX is away simpler than XML Schema Part 1; on the other hand,
RELAX borrows built-in datatypes of XML Schema Part 2. Thus,
migration from RELAX to XML Schema is easy."
- TREX - Tree Regular Expressions for XML
A TREX pattern specifies a pattern for the structure and content of an XML document. A TREX pattern thus identifies a class
of XML documents consisting of those documents that match the pattern. A TREX pattern is itself an XML document.

The xsbrowser (XML Schema browser) aims at creating a human readable XML document model from a given DTD (REC-xml-19980210)
or XML schema (REC-xmlschema-1-20010502) by means of an HTML browser. The user needn't understand the DTD or XML Schema syntax.
- Introducing the Schematron -- A fresh approach to XML validation and reporting
Judging from the ongoing developments and debates about XML document validation, it's evident the language is in flux. In
this article, writer and consultant Uche Ogbuji gets a handle on some of these changes and introduces the Schematron, a new
validation and reporting methodology and toolkit.
The Schematron is a simple and powerful Structural Schema Language. Rick Jelliffe describes it as a feather duster for the
furthest corners of a room where the vacuum cleaner (DTD) cannot reach.

This article gives my view on the language the W3C has developed to succeed HTML: XHTML. Agree or disagree with me, at least
you'll have something to think about and to help you decide. First I'll explain what XHTML is, then I'll give the four rules
of writing correct XHTML and finally I'll add some words about why you should use XHTML.
