Abstract: To constrain the structure of allowed XML documents, for instance with respect to a specific application, a target schema can be defined in some schema language. A schema consists of a sequence of type definitions specifying a (possibly infinite) class of XML documents. A type can be assigned to every element in a document valid w.r.t. a schema. As the same holds for the root element, also the document itself can be viewed to be of a specific type. The schema languages DTDs, XML Schema, and Relax NG, are, on an abstract level, different instantiations of the abstract model of unranked regular tree languages.
