Re: Name Space Question

/ "Conrad, Bill (ThomasTech)" <bconrad@thomastechsolutions.com> was heard to say:
| 	In other words, does namespace uniquely identify the elements
| defined in an XML Schema in relationship to elements in another XML schema
| or the relationship of elements in a document to other documents?

Namespaces provide a mechanism for constructing globally unique names
for elements and attributes. An XML Schema (or RELAX or TREX grammar,
or even a DTD) which describes constraints that documents in that namespace
must obey in order to be considered valid against that schema is unrelated
to Namespaces per se.

Any given element or attribute might be valid against any number of
different schemas.
