Title: RE: [xml-dev] validating against the standard W3C
Have you tried using another parser besides the Sun's MSV? I know for a fact that XSV can validate the W3C schema since I tried it myself shortly after the first email I sent you. You can easily verify this by accessing this URL
which is the results of having XSV validate the XSD file for W3C XML schema. I also mentioned that if you run Windows you can have XSV validate schemas by calling Runtime.exec( ) from your application.  If you absolutely have to use a Java API and don't run Windows I suggest trying Xerces which from my experience is fairly good as well.
Secondly, I keep wondering what validating your schema against the W3C XSD files buys you considering that you should get the same effect from using the "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" namespace in your schema (and in fact the W3C schema XSD file at http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema.xsd does in fact use that namespace so either way you're going to use it).
I will plan in advance what to do with each of my enemies if they are
captured. That way, I will never have to order someone to be tied up
while I decide his fate.

this answers say that to validate against the normative schema,
you have to write it in your schema (namespace declaration)

but how can you then validate this schema? Just by parsing=>gives parse exceptions but we want validation excpetions and more explanation about the possible error...

and we want to validate making use of a java api...
any idea how to do this?

I checked the deja-vu archive but couldn't find an answer to this question...

Yeah, Eddie Robertson and Henry Thompson answered this one [1]-- I couldn't
