Schemas and stylesheets are both declarative, and both include
information that can be acted on by processors.  In the case of a
schema, the result is a truth value (valid/not valid) and, optionally,
a transformation (supplying default values, etc.); in the case of a
stylesheet, the result is a transformation or rendition.

All the best,
