XML Schema Tutorial and Best Practices

I’m helping a customer design a web service for their CRM product and I’m trying to use this as an opportunity to teach myself to do WSDL First├é instead of the classic .NET way of letting the implementation generate the WSDL for you.

Of course the first step is in having a good understanding of XSD schemas. I have a pretty good grasp of the basics, but I was looking for some best├é practices and such. After searching through Google Groups for a while I found mention of Roger├é Costello’s xFront site.

If you are wanting to learn a bit about XSD development, head over there and do his XML Schema Tutorial. Then review his XML Schema Best Practices.

Exactly what I was looking for.
