One more issue on this subject, which might be a bit
offtopic, so I apologize in advance:

I've been getting a lot of comments from users of the XML
Schema's and instances I produce that working with the XML
Schema is problematic and that I'd be better off using RELAX
NG schemas instead of the W3C XML Schema schemas.

Can any of you comment on this? What is the status in
current open source projects? Which schema is being used the
W3C schemas, the RELAX NG schemas? Something else? 

And finally, is there any support to RELAX NG schamas in XML
parsers supported in Perl?

Subject: XML Validation in Perl


I wonder if anyone on the mailing list has experience with
XML validation against an XML Schema using Perl.

I am specifically looking for the following functionality:

1. Validating my XML Schema instance against the XML Schema
format (http://www.w3.org/XML/Schema).
2. Validation an XML instance against my XML schema.

For the 1st task, I don't really require a Perl solution as
I only need it during development/

I am specifically interested in using XML::Twig but I
couldn't do any of the above tasks using that tool.

Another problem/restriction I have is that the solution
shouldn't require Java, and instead can be easily installed
by a user (not necessarily root), built and used.

Looking forward to your input.
