Subject more xmlforms + schematron, why ?
Date Thu, 13 Mar 2003 15:50:22 GMT
Looking at xmlforms and schematron more closely, I'm starting to 
wonder why this combination was chosen anyways? from the examples
it seems the purpose of schematrons is to validate input fields, but checking
something simple as if a field is only alpha characters seems to be near 
impossible or atleast really hard with schematron (or am I missing something
here ? ) 
Isn't schematron intended for checking document structure, not validity of 
single fields/elements ?

Could someone eleborate on this ? please ? :)
and if anyone does have a simple idea of how to do a simple check with 
schematron for alpha or non alpha strings ( 'test' is good, 'test1' or 
'test#' is bad ) I'd be very gratefull for that too :)

Many thanks in advance,
	Jeroen Cranendonk
