I'm currently working on the W3C XML Schema Working Draft 7 April 2000.
I have a question concerning the <import> element.
When I use such an element inside a schema, do the imported elements have
the same target namespace than the main schema, or do they keep their originating targetNamespace.
Concretely, if I have a schema imp_schema.xsd:

<xsd:schema targetNamespace="imported_schema_ns">
	<xsd:element name="tag1"/>

and a main schema main_schema.xsd, which imports it:

<xsd:schema targetNamespace="main_schema_ns"
	<xsd:import namespace="imported_schema_ns" schemaLocation="imp_schema.xsd"/>
	<xsd:element name="MainTag">
			<xsd:element ref="imp:tag1"/>

Is the following instance of the main schema valid :

<x:MainTag xmlns:x="main_schema_ns"
	xsi:schemaLocation="main_schema_ns main_schema.xsd">

or this next one is better:

<x:MainTag xmlns:x="main_schema_ns"
	xsi:schemaLocation="main_schema_ns main_schema.xsd">

I think the second one is right, but I still have some doubt ...

Thanks in advance for your answers,


Didier Perhirin
