Dear Graydon,

Generating a schema from the exemplar file is indeed a good possibility;
thank you!

I'm glad you picked up on that. :-) Trang will generate quite a nice tight schema against an instance or a set of instances. Even only as a starter it can be quite useful.

In general, I prefer RelaxNG when using Trang for this sort of thing, not just because it's better at it than it is with XSD, but also because I find the results somewhat more tractable using my favorite tools (including the one that is the nominal and proper topic of this list).

Plus, take a look at Eric Van der Vlist's Examplotron:
