"The XML Schema implementation that ships with Internet Explorer 5 is
based primarily upon the XML-Data Note , posted by the W3C in January
1998, and the Document Content Description note. XML Schemas in Internet
Explorer 5 provide support for the subset of XML-Data that coincides
directly with the functionality expressed in DCD, albeit in a slightly
different XML grammar."

"The XML Schema implementation provided with Internet Explorer 5 focuses
on syntactic schemas, without support for inheritance or other
object-oriented design features."

Ah, well then. That clears things up.
