RE: Relaunched and expanded XML Schema Test Collection
There are two test collections at the location Henry referenced: # Download revised original test collection (6.73 MB) # Download 2nd edition test collection (2.76 MB) Your comments seem to relate to the second one listed. I suspect Henry was telling us about the first. This seems to have a similar collection of tests to the original test suite, but with better metadata and expected results. What I haven't seen, though, is a process for reporting bugs and for submitting test results for additional products.
