I'm not following you Andy. 

XML Authority is a graphical DTD/schema authoring tool, not a
programming language. I don't think that XML schema support in
Python/XML would get you any closer to having a graphical authoring tool
that works on Linux.

 Paul Prescod  - ISOGEN Consulting Engineer speaking for himself
Neo-liberals should try applying the same skepticism to the process of
granting and defining the state-conferred monopolies called intellectual
property rights that they do to the state-conferred regulatory
monopolies that affect certain kinds of banking business or the
electromagnetic spectrum.
