Using XML Schema (which you can use inside a transformation with Saxon
2+) will tell you if your document is truly valid according to the XML
Schema :)

Using XSL to validate means you will need to determine the rules which
may or may not indicate an instance document is valid according the
XML Schema.

validation problems cannot be solved by Schematron and must be solved by
XSLT.
