Subject: Encouragement to commit to partnering with XML Schema datatypes


   Congratulations and thanks for all your efforts to date on RELAX 
and TREX, and for your commitment to further develop RELAX NG 
<URL:http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/relax-ng/index.shtml>, as a 
specification for a simpler and more regular alternative to XML 

   This message is to strongly encourage you to commit at an early 
stage to partnering with XML Schema datatypes.  There are 
considerable, perhaps obvious advantages in maintaining datatype 
interoperability between these two schema languages.  Also, there's 
little point in 'reinventing the wheel' in this area.

   By doing so, you will also help ensure that such standards as ISO 
8601 -- the International standard for date and time representations, 
which has the virtues of being unambiguous and easily parsed, and 
which is already fully reflected in XML Schema's date and time 
datatypes -- will also (by extension) become an integral part of 

Many thanks,
