    I made a number of changes during the conversion. Some of them were necessary because of the new syntax, I made some others using the schema advantages and fixed some details.

    1. In the XML files based on the dtd there were some a-dtype references.
    That was dtd specific is has been removed.
    2. The entities have kind of mutated to data types.
    So I renamed the file 'UPDF Entities.dtd' to 'UPDF Data Types.xsd'.
    I renamed some xsd files while adding blanks to make it more human readable, as we already did for the XML files some time ago.
    3. Referring to other schemas is a lot nicer now in my view.
    It's a real include, as you can check.
    And we do not need the OptionalDummyForExternalEntities any more, which was a trick anyhow. Removed.
    4. I removed the entity engine_enum.
    The corresponding attribute accepts any string now. Will be edited on request in future.
    5. I renamed some entities/data types to line them up.
    ren duplex_enum global_media_duplex_enum
    ren duplex_processing_enum media_duplex_processing_enum
    ren staple_orientation_enum media_staple_orientation_enum
    ren staple_horizontal_position_enum media_horizontal_position
    ren staple_vertical_position_enum media_vertical_position
    ren scaling_enum media_scaling_enum

    That's it.
    If somebody feels home in xsd schemas, let me know!!! There will be chances to improve the schemas by using the new features schemas provide.
