One could have found a tutorial at Extreme Markup Languages 2001 in
Montreal (see http://www.extrememarkup.com/extreme/2001/monday.htm#bauman).
Given how little demand there was for it, though, I doubt it will be
In the interim, there are some sites that are useful (although I
daresay not as useful as a real hands-on tutorial). I put a
reasonable amount of work into assembling a list of them, but that
was almost 6 months ago, and I haven't checked to see if they are
still there or there are newer better versions, etc.:

A schema language might be described as a metalanguage for con-
straining XML documents. DTDs are the schema language built-in to XML
1.0. I don't know where is a good place to find out more, but I bet
lots of other folks do. The XML Cover Pages are a good reference,
but not a good tutorial. I don't know what's at Schema.net, as
their server isn't responding.

I don't recall which program uses which algorithm, and I'd even have
to refresh myself on which algorithms are good at what kind of data,
but in general XML compresses very well. The entire source tree for
P4 (which is all in a TEI XML) occupies 8.7 MiB on my system here; I
just tarred and gzipped them (using --best), the resulting files
total 2.3 MiB.
