Severity: wishlist

  Description     : Multi-format schema converter based on RELAX NG

 Trang converts between different schema languages for XML. It
 supports the following languages:
  * RELAX NG (XML syntax)
  * RELAX NG compact syntax
  * XML 1.0 Document Type Definitions (DTDs)
  * W3C XML Schema
 A schema written in any of the supported schema languages can be
 converted into any of the other supported schema languages, except
 that W3C XML Schema is supported for output only, not for input.
 Trang can also infer a schema from one or more example XML documents.
 Trang is constructed around an RELAX NG object model designed to
 support schema conversion. For each schema language supported for
 input, there is an input module that can convert from the schema
 language into this internal object model. Similarly, for each schema
 language supported for output, there is an output module that can
 convert from the internal object model in the schema language.
 Trang aims to produce human-understandable schemas; it tries for a
 translation that preserves all aspects of the input schema that may
 be significant to a human reader, including the definitions, the way
 the schema is divided into files, annotations and comments.
 This package may be particularly useful for converting DTDs for use
 with nxml-mode, as that package requires RELAX NG schemas for the
 full features of its context-sensitive editing functions to be
