RE: Problems validating the W3C schema DTD's
Brant Dainow wrote, regarding Microsoft's MSXML parser, "It spits an error that attribute 'xlmns' must be type #FIXED. Any comments?" The MSXML parser requires that any "xmlns" attribute declared in a DTD must be FIXED because, if you want to use the DTD to validate an instance, you must use exactly the same prefixes in the instance as were used in the DTD. Looking at the same point from another angle, DTDs do not treat namespace prefixes as symbolic intermediaries, but instead as ordinary characters in element and attribute names. As such, their binding is fixed by the author of the DTD, and any alteration of the binding in a document instance would produce an instance no longer described by that DTD. Presumably the work now underway in the W3C XML Schemas Activity will loosen this restriction. xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
