Dear Joseph,

You kindly created a RELAX NG schema for XML-Signature.  I 
find it available at:


This is linked from http://www.w3.org/Signature/.

The upcoming OOXML standard from JTC1 uses both W3C XML Schema and 
RELAX NG.  Since OOXML relies on XML signature, it has to uses schemas 
for XML-Signature.

The WXS version of the OOXML schema relies on 
which is official.  The OOXML specification does not include 
this schema, but merely references to it.  I believe that W3C 
has no problems about that.

The RNG version of the OOXML schema is different.  Since 
your schema uses the XML syntax and the OOXML schema 
uses the compact syntax, the OOXML schema in RELAX NG 
cannot reference to your schema.  I thus translated
your schema to the compact syntax using trang and 
the result is attached.

Now, we have a problem.  Can ISO/IEC and Ecma publish the 
attached schema as part of the OOXML specification?  I am 
not sure if this is acceptable to W3C.  Or, is it possible 
for W3C to publish the attached schema?  If this is possible, 
the OOXML specification can merely references to what 
W3C publishes.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
