Hello Jirka. Thanks for introducing relaxed.

It had been on my radar for a while, and even though, as others have 
mentioned, I don't really think it should be marketed as an HTML 
validator, it's a very interesting project.

As Nick mentioned earlier, this is not on the validator team's roadmap 
in the very short term, but rng based validation is definitely 
something being looked at, for instance for SVG 1.2.

One question is, how will the existing validator's architecture (perl 
based) be interfaced with relaxng tools? The latter are overwhelmingly 
java based. Soap has been mentioned as a solution, but I have not seen 
anything concrete done in this area yet. It could be a tremendously 
useful project for the future of validation tools at W3C.

Thank you.
