not that I'm aware of. There's something for generating a data type
and an access interface from DTD. See, in hxt source code:


nothing for picklers. and nothing from RelaxNG (even the validator is
not complete).

in HaXml there could be something worth having a look to (that depends
on what you are actually search for).

I had a similar problem some time ago and was looking for something
like that to implement CSL (and XML macro language for citation
formatting), but I handed up writing all the needed boilerplate code,
for the data type and the pickler deserializer.

Anyway, drop a line if you find (or write) something.
