I don't know about that but, currently no browser has support for XML schemas so you might just want to use dtds. ------------------ I wish there was a button on my monitor to turn up the intellegince. Theres a button called 'brightness' but it doesn't work

Arguably, browsers aren't ready for XML anyway. No browser ships with a decent XSLT implementation (not even IE 5.5), and without XSLT what use is there in sending XML to the browser? - Peter

I belive that both Oracle and SQL Server have utilities such that you can issue queries and you get the results back in XML. On Oracle, I believe it is called something like XSLU? Check out www.oracle.com and hunt around for it. I looked at it the other day and found it pretty easily. Brian
