FYI, both Turbo XML and XML Canon prodcue SVGs for use in graphical
representations of schema content models.  Turbo XML generates SVGs used in
its schema documentation component, namely SchemaDOC, while XML Canon
generates SVGs for its "Detailed View" feature interface.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

As one who created SVG from XDR schemas (prior to final XSD rec of course),
it is a daunting task.  One of the great arguments for schema was that it
was parsable and styleable.  But given the complexity of the final rec,
there just aren't scads of xslts for xsd.  In my own hunting, I managed to
come up with about 3 - one of which is my own concoction.

Building an SVG engine would be great for people like me who are constantly
looking for new and better ways to communicate the data model to domain
experts (who don't care to know about xml and shouldn't have to).  An
education tool more than a schema design tool.

I might just buy such a tool, Cyrill ... :)
