RELAX NG: emulating XSD <any> wildcard with processContents ="lax"?

I'm trying to figure out how to define an element in RNC so that its
contents are validated if a definition matches, othewise no validation
is done.

The example given in the tutorial seems to indicate that you need to
exclude by enumeration all defined attributes and elements:

#this validates all attributes loosely, except for the defined
xml:space attribute
element example {
attribute * - xml:space { text }*,
attribute xml:space { "default" | "preserve" }?

What I would like to do is:
element example {
attribute * - xml:* {text}*,
attribute xml:*

But this won't parse.

namespace foo = "http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"

anyOtherElement =
element * - foo:* { #any element names not in this namespace
attribute * { text }*,
| anyElement)*

anyElement = {
anyOtherElement *
& element foo:* #any element names in this

The problem is that the last line is trying to validate against
element names in the namespace, not grammar definitions in the
namespace. How do you refer to all top-level grammars in the schema
without enumerating them? Can you?

I've read a lot of posts on "why relax ng is so very good" and on "why w3c xml schema should be the only schema language". I'm, however, still not clear on why I should prefer one over the other. I've made a small list of some good and bad points of both. These points don't really go into the grammar aspects of these languages, but are more about secondary aspects. The grammar aspects are different, but both are suitable for validating...

Hi there, Since you've all told me that frames ar evil, I'm planning to disguard frames in favour of CSS "pseudo-frames" for my personal website. While trying to "emulate frames" (that is I want a 2 column layout, with the menu in the left column) I came up with this: http://home-1.tiscali.nl/~knmg0017/css_frames_1.htm

Here's the requirement that I am trying to satisfy: Handle wildcards in STL such that the wildcard entry is encountered before non-wildcard entries while traversing containers like sets and maps. I have come up with two approaches, one using inheritance and the other using composition. I am unable to decide which one is better. The sample source code follows.

I have a form where users can enter a string with asterisks to perform a wildcard search. Currently, the string entered by the user looks like this: *somestring* The purpose is to match any database field containing "somestring". Is there a way to avoid the need for the asterisks? This would make it easier for the users and also I wouldn't have to explain that asterisks are required when performing a wildcard search.

Its my understanding that in asp.net 2.0 you can write an httpmodule that will acts as a wildcard handler and pass requests on to the proper engine, for instance, asp or perl for example, In the past I believe if it wasn't an aspx file, things didnt work right. Can anyone provide input if this really is the case now?

Somebody please, please help me. I'm getting started using Relax NG to describe document schemas. After reading the grammar summarized by http://www.relaxng.org/spec-20011203.html (Section 5), I conclude that the following is a valid Relax NG schema: <grammar xmlns="http://relaxng.org/ns/structure/1.0"> <start> <attribute name="wtf"/> </start> </grammar>

Hi, I want to validate an XML document applying a combination of RELAX NG and Schematron. I have not found an appropriate validator. Would you please send me links to such validators.

We have a small (~50 line) DTD and a slightly larger (~300 line) W3C schema that we need to convert to Relax NG. (And I have a larger W3C schema that I may some day convert.) I was hoping that there would be some tools to get us started, but the list at http://relaxng.org/#conversion is not too promising. The one tool that looks like it would actually do such a conversion, the Sun RELAX NG Converter, appears to have disappeared from the...
