RE: RE:  XSD - Validator problem
Actually the relevant text is a bit beyond that in 4.3.3 where it says
which presumably means that XML processors MUST accept entities in UTF-8 with a byte order mark. But as that provision was only added by erratum to later editions of the XML spec, it's not surprising that older parsers don't accept it. People still using JDK 1.4 are always tripping over this.
(I prefer it too when users raise bugs in a product-specific forum, but it's actually quite useful that problems sometimes get aired in public because issues like this affect the whole community.)

Hi Group,
I should have replied to the group earlier as well. I actually responded to Sebastian offline earlier, anyway I am able to reproduce the error in XMLSpy when introducing a BOM at the beginning of the file as I informed Sebastian.
.. which takes us to the following page here,


In some cases, the customer is actually better off contacting the vendor of the tool he's using for a specific case such as this, where the tool is giving him an error he doesn't understand.

Tried it in XML Spy 2005 ! and it validates fine. Must be something wrong with your input file.

I am using XMLSpy 2007! Maybe that's the hint to my problem. So I will try to use a different validator and report if the error occurs there as well later on. Thanks to you guys for the first!
