I'm not sure whether this ABNF does what it should do. For example this
grammar allows ^ almost anywhere but I think that in most RE engines ^
should directly follow [ if it's meant as a negation.

Maybe starting with grammar in W3C XML Schema spec and forbidding some
rules would be easier.

It works for me. Anyway I synced versions of Jing, so you can give it
another try.
