And that's just about it for the moment. While you now know enough about the basics of XML Schema to begin using it in your XML development activities, you should be aware that the topics covered today are merely the tip of the iceberg. The XML Schema specification provides for a number of other powerful capabilities (including inheritance and grouping) and you should spend some time reading the official specification if you intend to get serious about the subject.

If you're interested, drop me a line and tell me if you'd like to read about these advanced capabilities in another article - and while you're at it, take a look at the following links as well:

The official XML Schema specification, at http://www.w3.org/XML/Schema#dev

XML.com's XML Schema section, at http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2000/11/29/schemas/part1.html

XML Schema School, at http://www.w3schools.com/schema/default.asp

Zvon's XML Schema reference, at http://zvon.org/xxl/xmlSchemaReference/Output/index.html

Until next time...stay healthy!
