[jdom-interest] What kind of support will there be for XML Schema in the validator.

I'm using schemas now with Xerces 1.3 and it seems to be working (as far as
I've taken it so far).  I'm not sure how to do it with a DTD, here is a link
to the Apache site where schema support is described,

The October 2000 W3C standard is *mostly* supported.

Looking at the source in DomBuilder and SaxBuilder, validation is abstracted
beyond whether a DTD or Schema will be used.  Either the parsers default
validator is used, or the SAXNotSupportedException is thrown when this
feature is absent.  Xerces 1.3.x seems to support XML schema.  I haven't
tried it yet.  Will plugging in the latest Xerces parser allow JDOM to work
with Schema's?  My guess it might as long as Xerces interprets validation
on, as applying to either DTD or Schema.
