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.
