Subject: Re: Relax NG specs

I agree this is an important issue.  I have been working on adapting my TREX
tutorial to RELAX NG, since this is something I can do relatively quickly.
Is this something we should release as the output of the committee, or
should I publish it independently?

I think the source for our documents should be XML, and we should provide at
least HTML and PDF representations of them.  I plan to use a home-brew
schema (with some special-purpose semantic markup) and generate HTML using

How accessible is the current TREX formal spec?  Is it too hard?  Do we need
something providing the same information as the formal spec but in an easier
to understand, less formal way (perhaps with the formalism in an appendix)?
