[ANN] Topologi Schematron Validator does RDF (well, almost)

Just a quick mention that my company Topologi have released a free Windows
GUI application which (among a lot of other things) validates RDF files
against a Schematron schema and can use a Schematron schema to automatically
generate RDF files.

See  http://www.topologi.com/

The autogeneration produces absolutely horrible RDF (only slightly updated
from last year's script), but the scripts are available and open source.
The idea is that Schematron schema (a rulebase of assertions) first is
converted into descriptions, then the XML datafile is processed to produce
other descriptions which link from the assertions to the document.
Suggestions for better output are welcome.

The tool can also be used for validation (Schematron, XML Schemas, DTDs,
schemas embedded in XML Schemas), XSLT processing (including various
parallel and series XSLT processes), and simple XTM generation.

Probably the Validator tool will be of more interest to this IG because of
reconfigurable XSLT processing capability: we have tried to expose as much
as we
can through user-definable options.  So it would be a useful shell to
develop XSLT-based screen-scrapers or new XML-based rule languages.
