Mike BiddlecombeSubject: Using an XSD file as the source XML file.
Author: Mike Biddlecombe
Date: 23 Jul 2004 12:42 AM
I'm in the process of evaluating SS and I'm trying to use it to create
an XSL file that will transform an XSD file (generated by a different app)

I set up my Scenario so that the Source XML URL points to the XSD file
without a problem; however, when I "open the Scenario XML Document" the
XSD is doesn't get handled like a plain old XML file, instead it is
loaded in as XSD (with special editing/viewing options)

Unfortunately, I lose the XML menu, as well as the handy Query Output
tool I like to use while creating the XSL file.

Renaming the XSD file as an XML doesn't help.

The workaround I'm using is to rename the <xs:schema xmlns:xs= ...> root
node to something like <xs:fooschema xmlns:xs= ...> save,
close, then reload the file. Without the schema element, the file is
loaded as an XML file.

It would be nice if the Scenario property had a setting to 'force' the
file designated as the 'Source XML URL' to be treated as plain old XML,
regardless of it's contents. I don't want to edit the XML source file,
I just want to create a transform for it.

I'm totally new to SS, so feel free to tell me how wrong I am or what
I've overlooked.

Thanks for the feedback: we will put the Query toolbar also in the
XMLSchema editor. What do you miss about the XML menu that the XMLSchema
menu doesn't provide?

Thanks,
Alberto
