XML Registries: Standardizing Document Structures

Groups from genealogists to real-estate brokerages want to share data without having to use complex file format converters, and they are banding together to create open XML DTDs and other structures. Today, the only standard way of structuring XML documents is with DTDs (document type descriptors). But there are several proposals for richer and more complex systems, known as schema. In any case, shared structures will improve searching as all data will be in the same format and will not require special field names.
