Re: Round 2: How an XML instance document references an XML Schema
maybe this is a stupid question, but _why_ does schemaLocation take two URI ? What is the point of the first one giving a namespace? It seems to be one source of the complication, and currently I don't see how it can be used. After namespace processing the names in both the schema and the document are all fully expanded to (uri,local-name) pairs, so it would seem that the only question was whether these pairs matched and so I don't see how the namespace URI in schemaLocation may be used. Having to have a URI makes it difficult to refer to the unnamespaced case. > A Schema-validating parser will use the URI to fetch the schema > document, and then will verify that the targetNamespace value matches > the namespace in schemaLocation. Is this the _only_ use of the first URI, to generate an error if it is incorrect? David xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
