Thanks for the clarification. If you'd like to read about the Microsoft
XML Schema Infoset APIs try 
System.Xml.Schema in the .NET Framework =
If two wrongs don't make a right, try three.

	Hi Dare,
	Reasonable question....
	This is a technical sharing, letting readers of a few mailing
lists know what we're doing. 
	IBM thinks many Java programs need a Schema Components Infoset
API that also makes visible components from the XML representation.
	IBM knows of customers that would like to have an API which is
implemented by software from more than one vendor, or from an open
source effort. 
	There were 3 particular reasons why I posted this notice to 2
W3C schema-related mailing lists.
	First, I've been told that various participants in W3C XML
Schema-related activities have expressed interest in having such an API,
whether produced by W3C or produced elsewhere.
	The second reason was to share our extensive experience in this
	The third reason was to discover whether other people think it
makes sense for an open source effort to revise or complete this work. 
	I am personally not familiar with Microsoft's Schema Components
Infoset API, or those of other vendors.
