This is followed by an outline of Schematron and the intended uses which have guided its design.The Schematron language is then discussed, covering all major elements in the language with examples of their usage.The majority of these have taken the basic premise of recasting DTD functionality in XML syntax with the addition, in some cases, of other features such as data typing, inheritance, etc [XMLSchema].The use of XML syntax provides additional flexibility through leveraging existing tools for markup manipulation, while the 'value added' features satisfy the requirements of developers looking for closer integration with databases and object-oriented languages.This paper introduces the Schematron language and the available implementations.An overview of the architecture, with a view to producing customised versions is also provided.Abstract Schematron [Schematron] is a structural based validation language, defined by Rick Jelliffe, as an alternative to existing grammar based approaches.Tree patterns, defined as XPath expressions, are used to make assertions, and provide user-centred reports about XML documents.

The initial section of this paper conducts a brief overview of tree pattern validation, and some of the advantages it has in comparison to a regular grammar approach.
