I am trying to figure out where the two things fit.
It seems to me that the SGML content model system is primarily
concerned with describing the future of a document (what can
go where). The XML-data schema system seems more
concerned with the 'present' of a document.
So SGML is concerned with information management, while
XML-data is concerned with information retrieval. Does that
AFs seem to sit in between these two extremes, being
able to constrain futures and give more sophisticated
labelling for data retrieval.
