Unfortunately, your scratching your head is not an effective way to communicate to me that you would like me to change an error message. The way to get me to change something is to send me a bug report including as many as possible as: - the error message you got - a brief explanation of why the error message made you scratch your head - an alternative error message that would not have made you scratch your head - the schema - the instance - the version of Jing you're using At the very least, I need the first two. If I tried to guess what you found confusing, I would probably get it wrong. If the problem is just the wording, then you can change it yourself. Extract com/thaiopensource/relaxng/impl/resources/Messages.properties from jing.jar (e.g. with unzip), edit to taste (and send me the diffs), and add back to jing.jar. If it's the formatting you don't like, you can change com/thaiopensource/xml/sax/resources/Messages.properties. One of the problems with trying to improve error messages is that almost nobody ever feels it's worthwhile to report a confusing/unhelpful error message as a bug. James
