RE: XSD Support in MSXML ?

MSXML 4.0 beta supports XSD Schemas.  3.0 does not.  
You can download and install the new version at the usual 
place.  There is also an SDK with a Help file loaded with 
good examples.  Note that it installs in side by side 
mode.  The right mouse utility will still call 3.0, not 
4.0, so look for the code examples that show how 
to call 4.0 and use the schema cache.

Subject: XSD Support in MSXML ?


I'm new to XML and I was reading about it for a few days. Now I'm
experimenting with something (using XML schemas) but can't figure out if
MSXML 3.0 supports the XSD-style schemas (not only the MS-specific

What I'm doing wrong ? Here are my XML and Schema file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<test xmlns:test="http://www.test.org/"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.test.org/ test.xsd">

  <block name="b1">text</block>


The Schema:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
targetNamespace="http://www.test.org/" xmlns="http://www.test.org/">
  <xsd:element name="test" type="xsd:integer"/>

The definition of <test> intentionally is set to "integer". Isn't it normal
for a validating parser to return an error, because <test> is not defined as
"integer" in the XML file ?

Why then IE 5.01 (with MSXML 3.0 SP1) doesn't report an error and just
displays the XML as if it was no schema ?

I hope someone can help me figure this out !
