I think XML Schema is the usual schema language for this sort of
files. I would have been happy to use Relax-NG, but it is less
popular, and the number of validators is smaller. In fact, Relax-NG
allows one to express that filterList is only valid with the mime
attribute value "application/pdf", etc.

In my version fonts is optional. xml-handler does not occur. What does
your config file contain?
