Family Tree of Schema Languages for XML: now takes A3 page!

by Rick Jelliffe

Since 1999 I have been putting out a diagram "A Family Tree of Schema Languages for XML". Here is version 7: I have redrawn it because it runs onto an A3 sheet.

The extra size has allowed me to make the lines less confusing and to add

* the complete set of ISO DSDL schema languages
* the ISO Topic Map set of constraint languages
* the RDF family of schema languages
* the newer and proposed schema-related languages
* some misc older languages, or languages that didn't fit
* a new section for other languages
* more of the schema languages that I invented during my time at Academia Sinica, in fine print
