Re: SAXParser - Dynamic Validations

SAX2 defines a flag to make validation visible,
and some parsers let you change its value.
I suspect you're using the wrong URI for the
feature flag controlling validation, otherwise
most SAX2 parsers would report a different

In the XML spec, "validation" is defined without
reference to whether a DTD is specified or not.
That means that a validating parser is required to
give a LOT of errors when you give it a document
without a DTD.

Xerces defines a nonstandard mode that seems
like it should do what you want ("auto", UTSL for
the exact name of the feature flag), but I really
discourage putting such nonstandard modes into
system architectures.
