In general, you'll want to declare local <title> elements for those
places in which their declarations differ from the global declarations. This is
necessary because these differing <title> elements have the same name as
the global <title> element but a different format.

I have defined a W3C XML Schema that allows markup
of Policy documents. (BTW - I am new at schema design!)
A valid xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<title>Section 1 Title</title>
<title>Section 2 Title</title>
<title>Section 3 Title</title>
<clause>text - <link
So you can see
that each main section of a document is marked up as a
<section></section>, and each section must have a
No problem, the schema works fine as far as
I have so far tested.
What I wish to do though, is enforce two specific
<section>'s : in other words, the first <section> in each document
will always have a specific <title>. That being, for arguments sake,
<title>Section 1: Policy Purpose</title>.
second section will also have a specific title - that being
<title>Section 2: Document Glossary</title>
<title>'s used in a document will be required (where they exist), but
their content will not be fixed.
I have made
<title></title> a global element. How can i now instantiate it
twice, with specific content, once for each section?? I am using the XML Spy
schema GUI tool, and each time I try to provide a fixed value, that value
becomes global...and thus applies to all <title> tags in the document. I
am using the <title> element in the following elements - hence its
global definition :
<hminor> (minor heading)
Do I need to
create a <s1title> and <s2title> separate to my original
<title> element, or is there a more clever way of approaching this
issue? I am thinking there is but I am a tad stumped! Any assistance would be
