Title: RE: [xml-dev] W3C XML Schema Test Collection


I'd also like to suggest that the XML Schema WG produce
a list of recommended error messages for validator authors.

I realize that this is a very big job, and it's hard to
produce a complete list, but it would be very helpful if
all conforming validators emitted the same message for the
same error. Perhaps a starting point would be to ask
validator authors to list the error messages they use
together with the circumstances that trigger them.

I'm currently trying to implement XML Schema using Xerces
and some of the messages are very obscure, and from some
of the postings on this topic it appears the same error
can produce error messages that have vastly different
levels of meaning.

Apologies to the list if this mail appears in HTML format.
We are using Exchange and it puts all e-mail into HTML format!
We are waiting on an upgrade to fix this.
