   Newbie Q: Validating heterogeneous XML

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Here's a rank beginner's question.

The main rationale I have seen for namespace support in XML is to
enable the peaceful coexistence of XML fragments from various
sources within the same ("heterogeneous") XML document without
their trampling over each other's namespaces.

What about the validation of such "heterogeneous" XML documents?

Not only are various fragments probably governed by different
syntaxes, but these syntaxes are probably specified using different
languages (DTDs, XML Schema, etc.).

How are all these competing standards and diverse syntatic
specifications brought together to validate a heterogeneous XML
