[Xerte] Where can I find the schema for rlo file?

I can see it is useful if you are creating tools that create .rlo xml. I
did start to make one, but there wasn't really any point, and nothing I
could think of at the tie it would be useful for. That doesn't mean it
might not be useful - just so far no one has trid to do anything that
requires one,

For the benefit of folk on here who wouldn't know a schema from a bowl
of trifle:

I think what Jin's referring to is the XML schema
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xml#Schemas_and_validation), a definition
file (DTD) which describes the nodes and attributes in the XML which
Xerte uses. This is part of standard XML but is currently not applicable
to Xerte in that the .rlo file is a data store for the Xerte runtime
engine only, rather than a document to go online. Do you have a
practical reason for wanting a schema, Jin?

I'm a long, long way from being an expert on XML, but my vague memory is
that a schema is essentially a dictionary of terms. XML allows you to
create your own private language, so the schema tells the Whole Wide
World what your words mean. I think - I'm happy to be corrected on this.
