Subject: Re: [ubl] [Fwd: New Release of NIST's XML Schema Quality of Design Tool]


Hi Tim:

NIST has provided QOD as an open-source project.  The source code is
available on SourceForce so QOD can be used internally.

NIST doesn't have the resources to write all the test cases for all the
NDRs.  It would be great if any Schematron rules have already been
created for UBL or any standard could be incorporated into QOD.
