Re: xsd : root element not found

xml root element not found
Hi Daren,

Your XML file has a root element standaloneArticle from the 
"http://globals.namespace.org" namespace while your schema defines a 
standaloneArticle element in the 
http://globals.namespace.org/content/xml/xsd/v10/article/single/ (schema 
target namespace) namespace so there is no definition for your root 
element in that schema.

Best Regards,
