XML-Data Reduced Subset Paper

I've received rather a few mails asking for information on the schema
support in Microsoft IE5 MSXML Parser.  People writing to me have often
pointed out the confusion surrounding the terms "schema" and especially
"XML-Data" -- and they are right.  They are right also when they note that
the information on http://msdn.microsoft.com <http://msdn.microsoft.com>
/xml is incomplete. So I've written a fairly lengthy guide to what IE5 has
in the way of schema support, and the BizTalk folks have posted it on their
site, at http://biztalk.org/btSchemasGuide.asp
<http://biztalk.org/btSchemasGuide.asp>  .  Unfortunately, they also mangled
the formatting somewhat, so I will ask them if they can repair that.  But
the content is decent.
This work on schemas antedated the current W3C activity for schema design.
There is a page, also at the BizTalk site, containing links to the current
W3C schema activity documents: http://biztalk.org/btSchemasGuidelines.asp
<http://biztalk.org/btSchemasGuidelines.asp>  .
Best wishes,
