1. I should have added a link to what I collected at the bottom of
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-wai-ert-tsdtf/2008Sep/0011.html>.


2. I hadn't thought of looking into Perl support.

The Perl module xml::schematron predates ISO Schematron and only 
seems to support earlier versions (Schematron 1.5?). This is the only 
Perl implementation listed at
<http://www.schematron.com/links.html>.
Of course, it is possible to use the XSLT implementation I described at
<http://www.bentoweb.org/refs/TCDL2.0/tsdtf_schematron.html> but with 
a Perl module instead of Java. I found Perl modules for XSLT at
* <http://search.cpan.org/~jstowe/XML-XSLT-0.48/lib/XML/XSLT.pm> and
* <http://search.cpan.org/~mlehmann/PApp-1.43/PApp/XSLT/LibXSLT.pm> 
(a wrapper for an XSLT implementation).
If W3C is already using Apache AxKit <http://www.axkit.org/>,

3. Regarding XSLT implementations: I also found tutorials for using 
Sablotron in PHP:
* 
<http://devzone.zend.com/article/1087-Using-Sablotron-to-process-XSLT> (2003),
* 
<http://sniptools.com/vault/sablotron-xslt-php-apache-on-windows-and-a-basic-xslt-tutorial>.
Sablotron also has a Perl API (see 
<http://www.xmlhack.com/read.php?item=482>). However, Sablotron 
itself is in C++.

Christophe
