I am new to XML and am busy trying to learn it. I hope someone can help me with
a reqlly stupid question. I am working through the XML: Extensible Markup
Language book by Elliotte Rusty Harold and understand DTDs but have noticed that
Schemas are mentioned on a lot of XML web sites  and on this list as a
replacement for DTDs. Could someone tell me what they are and tell me of some
resources that could help me understand them better.

Many thanks
