ISO/IEC 19757-2:2003 specifies RELAX NG, a schema language for XML. A RELAX NG schema specifies a pattern for the structure and content of an XML document. The pattern is specified by using a regular tree grammar. A RELAX NG schema is itself an XML document.

ISO/IEC 19757-2:2003 specifies:

  • when an XML document is a correct RELAX NG schema; and
  • when an XML document is valid with respect to a correct RELAX NG schema.
