ISO/IEC 19757 defines a set of Document Schema Definition Languages (DSDL) that can be used to specify one or more validation processes performed against Extensible Markup Language (XML) or Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) documents. (XML is an application profile SGML, ISO 8879:1986.)

ISO/IEC 19757-3:2006 specifies Schematron, a rules-based schema language for XML. It establishes requirements for Schematron schemas and specifies when an XML document matches the patterns specified by a Schematron schema.
