She kind off already has 
 
  http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1861005474/qid=1026063847
 
but its one of those WROX dozen author books which I assume means Jeni only wrote a few chapters. If a full book about W3C XML Schema was written solely by Jeni it would have my recommendation [after reviewing it of course].

	One of the troubles with XML Schema is the lack of good
	information, including solutions to real-world problems, and work-
	arounds to XSD's many limitations.  I've been monitoring this list for
	a few months now and I've noted that Jeni consistently provides
	well thought out answers and demonstrates a deep understanding
	of XSD and Schematron.
	
	I went to the book store today looking for a good book and found
	nothing more than reworks of the specification.  I wanted to take a
	look at Vlist's new book, but sadly the store didn't have it.
	
	Jeni, you should write a book about XSD.  I suggest it follow a
	workbook sort of structure.  You could begin each chapter with a
	traditional explanation of the technology, but the real value would
	be in the Q&A section at the end of each chapter.  You could glean
	material right from this list; in many cases, your own answers,
	expanded and explained in more detail, would provide valuable 
	useable info to your readers.
	
	Regards,
