I am looking for a style guide for documenting XML schemas.

I am wondering how to organize the material.
Should I create separate sections for parent elements, child elements, and attributes?
I have been thinking about using the Microsoft Office 2003 Developer Reference>Microsoft Office 2003 Reference Schemas
as a model.

What do you think? Have any of you run across any other useful resources?

Note: I am not looking for information about using XML as a tool for creating technical documention.

Thanks for any guidance you can give me.
