Replace XSD screenshots with code listings #569

The screenshots of the XSD schema elements are out-of-sync with the changed schema files.
They could be replaced with XML examples that can be validated during CI.

For example


could be replaced with

<Boolean name="bool_in"

This would also save a lot of space (compared to the current PNGs), improve the rendering on small screens and provide valid (copy & paste friendly) examples.

I have always seen these pictures as part of the normative specification.
So how can they be replaced by an example?
Will then the XSD pert describing e.g. the attributes of the boolean variable be included in the specification? But this is not so well readable as the generated pictures.

Technically they are normative (not in square brackets). If we keep them, someone needs to update the screenshots.

Another possibility would be to rebuild them as ASCII-art. Something like

+ Boolean
  + declaredType (normalizedString)
  + start (boolean)

For the complex types this would be quite an effort though...
