How does this work in practice? I am not very familiar with XML Schema. Lets say somebodies intended XML structure is as follows: <?xml version="1.0" ?> <a> <b> <c /> </b> </a> Does this mean that it is impossible to write a XML Schema where this document would *not* be valid: <?xml version="1.0" ?> <b> <c /> </b> I presume this is not the case, and that <b> and <c> can defined in such a way that they can only occur in a certain context. In such a case, you could deduce that <a> is the root element, even if it is not explicitly marked as such. However, it may be the case that other elements, <x>, <y> and <z> could also be defined with the same content model as <a>, and therefore there are 4 possible root elements for a schema valid document. Is this the case?
