Why Use XML Schemas?

Hi nancyisabell!

Here's some of the reason why you should use XML Schemas:

- XML Schemas is the support for data types. When you use XML Schemas it is easier to describe allowable document content, easier to validate the data, easier to work data on the data base, easier to define data patterns and easier to convert data from another data types.

- XML Schemes use XML Syntax. Meaning they are written in XML. Therefore, you don't have to learn new language, you can manipulate your Schema with the XML DOM and you can use your XML editor to edit your Schema files

- XML Schema Secures Data Communication. When sending a data, it is expected that both the receiver and the sender can describe its content. With XML Schemas, the sender can describe the data in a way that the receiver will understand.

Hope it helps! :)
