Another area where it seems one can enjoy the full freedom of applying your own non-portable approach is the situation where the
grammars to be used for validation consist of DTD(s) for some parts, of schema(s) for other parts and maybe both for yet other
parts.

I must have missed something, as the only practical way at this time seems to consist of “roll-your-own” validator and errorhandler
implementations  (extending, for instance, Xerces-J).

Is anyone ware of initiatives more specific/detailed than or evolving beyond the DOM Level 3 "Abstract Schemas" June 7th draft?
