   Re: [xml-dev] UPA and schema handling

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I don't know about W3C schemas, but the XML spec is not at all clear 
that a non-deterministic content model in a DTD is an error. Indeed some 
versions of Xerces have not so flagged it.

Section E of the spec is classified as non-normative, and even that only 
says "XML processors built using SGML systems may flag non-deterministic 
content models as errors." It does not say they are required to do so. 
And what about XML processors not built on top of SGML systems?
