Thanks for spotting that Eddie. I'd not noticed the command-line! If I
validate friend.xml against just friend.xsd with either XSV or MSXML they
both claim the document is valid. I guess it is, according to friend.xsd, it
just isn't valid WRT birthday.xsd. It comes down to the fact that a yes/no
is not enough when doing schema validation... we need the validators to
produce 'Yes, but....' information. TO be fair to XSV if you dump the
PSVI[1] it does say ( right at the bottom ) that validation was 'partial'. I
haven't figured out how to dump a PSVI from MSXML yet ;-)

My previous post was based on running a command line of

    xsv friend.xml friend.xsd birthday.xsd
