Document Structure Description

Document Structure Description (DSD) is an XML schema language. It is designed to be a simple and easily understandable language, yet with an expressive power beyond that of the alternative schema languages, such as DTD or XML Schema. The DSD project is being pursued at AT&T Labs Research and at BRICS, Aarhus University with contributions from QinetiQ Ltd.
