Ah.  You too?  I'm also quite intrigued by Hook.  Interesting to see how such 
an extremely minimalist schema language will hold up to real-world cases.

In case anyone is wondering what Hook is, here is a complete schema for XHTML 

  html head  [ title; meta. link. base. ]   
  body [ a br. blockquote caption; div  dl; form h1; h2; h3; h4; h5; h6;  
        img. ol; p; pre; table; ul; ]  
  [ tr;  dt; dd; li;  input; label; select; textarea; ]  [ td option. ]
  [ abbr acronym address cite code dfn em kbd q samp span strong var object; ] 

Me, I like.  See http://www.ascc.net/xml/hook.
