    First of all, ERD stands for entity-relationship diagram. It's a graphical representation of tables and their relationships with each other. I'm looking for a good one, and happened to find the following links. Anyone used them before, or can suggest one?

    I never used any of them, but if you want some advice, you might want to try looking for a tool that can convert your schema to XSD... there are plenty of tools out there for modeling in XSD, such as XML Spy, which will generate schema diagrams and HTML documentation for you, among other things.

    XMLSchema
    The XMLSchema language can be used in place of DTD to define rules for XML documents.

    Document Type Declaration... defines how a document can be structured. Think of html as an XML document, where the DTD defines which tags can be used and how.

    DTD is to XSD like Turbo Pascal is to Java.

    DTD is antiquated and useless. Don't bother learning it at this point.

    XSD, on the other hand, is some schweezle. You can define datatypes with enumerations or value restrictions. You can define multiple-level heirarchical structures of greater complexity to any database, including inheritance (OO) and much more. XSD is THE modeling language to end all modeling languages. In fact, the specification for XSD itself is written in XSD !!! :-P
