One of the parsers I tried it with was the latest version of MSXML (which I
generally find to be excellent, BTW).

Here's example.xml:


Here's example.xsd:

<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema";

<xs:element name="foo">


Here's the example.js I used to perform the validation:

var schemas = new ActiveXObject("MSXML2.XMLSchemaCache.4.0");
schemas.add("http://www.example.com";, "example.xsd");

var x = new ActiveXObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument.4.0");
x.async = false;
x.schemas = schemas;
x.validateOnParse = true;
if (x.parseError.errorCode != 0)
  WScript.Echo("invalid: " + x.parseError.reason);

When I run example.js, it says "valid".  Note that if you add
xmlns="http://www.example.com"; to <bar/>, then it does report it as invalid.

Is there something else I should have done to make it report the example as
