In this paper we discuss the possibility to represent synthetically semistructured information via a loose notion of schema: we say that data are semistructured when, although some structure is present, it is not as strict, regular, or complete as the one required by the traditional database management systems. Our proposal is based on WG-Log, a graph based language for the representation of WWW site information. We show how information encoded in a typical semistructured information model, as
