This paper first introduces standard XML reference instants and XML data instants based on the weighted XML data model. Then it displays the expression ways of constraints in DTD. Furthermore, the paper also shows the approaches on how to implement similarity algorithm,with an emphasis on how to find out a matching node with standard XML reference instants and to get the similarity algorithm of standard XML reference instants and that of XML data instants.

Key wordsWeighted XML      DTD      Similarity      Schema matching
