RE: Including multiple schemas - duplicate name errors

My understanding of the purpose 
of namespaces was to address
same term - different meaning 
kinds of situations.  Like if 
the term address was used to in
one schema for a postal address 
and in another for an ip address.

The common elements in schemas b 
and c are the same term because they 
have the same meaning.  For example, 
element TransportationMode appears 
in both schema b and c.  b & c are
packaged together into one schema
for particular shipment scenarios.

Sounds like you need to use Namespaces in schemas b and c.....schema a 
then reference these namespaces and then prevent any naming conflicts.

Subject: Including multiple schemas - duplicate name errors

I have a schema (A) that logically contains
2 other schemas (B & C).  I used the 
include feature to bring B & C into the 
A schema.  Some of the elements
between the B & C schemas have the 
same name (and logically have the same
definition) and the parser tells me that the 
element type has been defined more than 
once in the A schema.  

What are some ways I could resolve this?
