This one is still a big issue. I'm presuming that neither Zope nor Python have addressed XForms.2) I also need to serve up web-based forms and allow the user to create XML content based on a user-selected schema. Something like what Chiba (http://chiba.sf.net/) is targeting. Of course, though, that isn't a Python/Zope solution. Has anyone seen anything that works? At this point, installing Tomcat and Chiba is what I presume I'll be doing in a couple of weeks....
Does anyone here know of a project which has that I can incorporate, or use with Zope/Plone?

I found some info on Silva last week, but passed over it since I'm using Plone (and cannot switch). Will they work together?
I just found where Uche Ogbuji wrote, in http://www.xml.com/lpt/a/2004/02/11/py-xml.html -- [Version 0.7 parser had a fatal error with input containingDennis Allison wrote:While you need to write appropriate External Methods and/or Products to use it, we have found that the ReportLab pyRXP system works well.
Perhaps he's overly harsh, but since the XML files I'm dealing with are used to map between (human) languages, correct UTF-8 handling is vital. Have you perchance tried and had success with anything beyond U+256?
Currently, I've an Extension "browser-ish" class that takes the form.file submission (and other data), MIME encodes them and forwards them via HTTP to a Perl XML validation tool on the web that was already running. It's an *ugly* hack, but it works for now.Three questions, in order of importance (to me):1) Is it possible to validate an (uploaded) XML file against a schema (currently on the Zope server)? What, if any, extra packages are needed? I want to use this in my upload forms to alert the user if their files are invalid.
Sounds like this is as good as it gets, or close enough that it wouldn't be worth the effort to change.3) Is there a function built-in to Zope that allows merging XML files? (ie: all the <abc> within a list of user-selected files). I've got an Extension that works correctly (using the Amara/4Suite packages), so an answer here is mostly for me to learn Zope better.
