Subject: Re: precious little press

Schemas by themselves are pretty abstract, and talk of alternatives to an
existing Rec border on the obscure to many editors; not unimportant, just,
like talk of topic maps, bordering on the academic. However, I'd recommend
dropping Simon St. Laurent a note on this, if he isn't aware of it already -
he's not a big fan of XML Schema in the first place, he and Ed Dumbill over
at XML.COM are tight, and he's generally good at explaining topics. I'm
still digesting Trex, but I can probably write up something for XML Magazine
on comparative schemas - I owe them an article anyway - and that would be a
good place to get Trex into the mainstream. I've also been asked to cover a
couple of chapters for a Wrox schema book, so I'll press to make sure that
Trex/Relax is at least mentioned there ... that one's a little more
problematic as their close to deadline, but we may be able to swing it.
