Hi Benjamin,

Well, as you may know it already, MlView uses extensively libxml2 for the
underlaying xml manipulations. So roughly said, I would answer that
if libxml2 supports xml schema, MlView is likely to support it and
I would definitely want it to support it.
However, at the moment, libxml2's main developer (who is one the best XML gurus)
is advocating RELAX-NG instead of w3c xml schema. Furthermore, the RNG
support in libxml2 is fully functional at the moment, which is not the
case for xml schema.

This is why I would say that a support of RNG validation is
likely to appear in MlView sooner than an xml schema support.

To be honest with you, I am focusing right now on the GTK2ification
of MlView so the support of other types of validation will eventually
come after this much needed GTK2ification ... unless someone provides
a patch for it :-) which would be really appreciated ;-)

I hope I have anwsered your question correctly.

All the best,
