I have just published the first version of Schematron tutorial at:

There is a lot of work to be done to make it really useful but it
demonstrates some strength of Schematron.

If I can speak for myself with Schematron a dream come true. This was
precisely the tool I was looking for. And I actually missed it for the
first time I have seen the announcement some time ago. Then, on this
Friday, I have seen it mentioned in a message at comp.text.xml, peeped
in and was trapped. This week I have  started to play with it and I have
realized that it solves many problems I had so far with XML validation. 
It is superbly simple, elegant, XPath based and already implemented!

There actually arises a question a friend of mine asked when I was
raving about Schematron today:
XML must be well-formed. If it conforms to DTD, then it is valid. So
what if it conforms to Schematron, is it schematronic?
