Martha J. SmithSubject: Help needed: XMLSchema and unparsed data
Author: Martha J. Smith

I am feeling very dense - I can find the routines for SLT to handle unparsed data, I can find white papers on why the unparsed data should be an attribute not an element. I've even found NDATA for DTD's to specify unparsed. But I don't seem to be able beyond the need for an attribute with the type ENTITY in XMLSchema. Do any of you know how to specify unparsed data with a schema? Thank you.

Hi Martha,
it's not clear to me what you want to achieve, but have you looked at xs:NOTATION (see http://www.stylusstudio.com/w3c/schema1/cNotation_Declarations.htm)

Hope this helps,
Alberto

Thank you - this may help. I know there has to be a way to create an XML document associated with an XMLSchema that uses XHTML examples in the text. I'll let you know if this doesn't work.

In researching the use of NOTATION I could only find warnings not to use it. (Not to mention that I didn't succeed in getting it to work. However, I did find an article that recognized that sometimes an XML document needed to contain PDF's, jpeg's, XML and other such business formats or illustration formats. It refered me to http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-media-types/ which appears to directly address the issue I'm having. However, StylusStudio still insists on parsing the hexBinary data. Has anyone gotten StylusStudio to not parse data that is defined as binary but actually text?

Hi Marta,
could you post the XML+XSD files you are trying to validate? If you don't want to post them in a public forum, you can also send them to stylus-field-report@progress.com

Thanks,
Alberto

We'll see if I understand how to upload an attachment :-). I am taking XHTML files which have one, unformated section UnitContent and converting them to XML and using an eXist natural XML database for storage. Because UnitContent contains tables, lists, citations, external links, jpegs etc. my first choice is to treat the XHTML as unparsed text hoping that access through eXist could handle the text. My second choice is to treat the various XHTML formating tags as delimiters for XML elements ... in which case I need multiple, unsequenced occurences. With this approach, I still need to get href's and jpegs to work. In the worst of all worlds, I can handle the href's through Java scripts and use Includes (semi-standard XML) but I hate to add this complexity when trying the new eXist technology.

As an aside, I would like to see Dublin Core, XInclude and similar semi-official schema included in Stylus so that I could use them offline without making private copies. And I really do like Stylus Studio even if it doesn't magically resolve all my problems :-)

Hi Martha,
provided that you fix the URLs stored in the XHTML attributes so that '&' is replaced by '&', you can store the well-formed XHTML in the XML and query it in eXist by declaring the UnitContent element as

<xsd:element name="UnitContent">
<xsd:complexType>
<xsd:sequence minOccurs="0">
<xsd:any processContents="skip" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
</xsd:sequence>
</xsd:complexType>
</xsd:element>

Hope this helps,
Alberto
