Yes, it's working fine with Saxon.

Some feedback:

1) MSXML 3.0 fails to transform, probably due to a lack of support of
the namespace axis.

The error message is:

  MSXML3.DLL: Expected token ')' found '['.
  april:schema/namespace::*-->[<--.='http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema']

2) A very simple example[1] is performing well on [2] except that the
the test report [3] includes a bunch of DTD validation errors on the
schema itself:

Low-level XML well-formedness and/or validity processing output

Warning: Root element name xsd:schema not declared
 (detected at end of prolog of document
http://www.dyomedea.com/tests/newschema/library.xsd)
Warning: Start tag for undeclared element xsd:schema
 in unnamed entity at line 4 char 12 of
http://www.dyomedea.com/tests/newschema/library.xsd
Warning: Undeclared attribute xmlns:xsd for element xsd:schema
 in unnamed entity at line 4 char 22 of
http://www.dyomedea.com/tests/newschema/library.xsd
.../...

These errors are due to differences in the prefix used in my schema file
and the one defined in the DTD and I wonder if it wouldn't be better to
remove the reference to http://www.w3.org/2000/10/XMLSchema.dtd from the
translated schema.

Hope this helps.

Eric
