I am using XSV to validate a simple schema:

file:///d:/XML certification/6 - xsl sample A/document_schema.xsd:7:5:
Warning: violation of constraints on exponents

1) That's a warning, not an error;
2) It's described in the XSV home page [1];
    I do not understand your explanations from the home page.

    Off-topic: your "documentation" is extremely cryptic. Three month ago I had to loose 2 hours just to figure out how to use the various switches on XSV. I don't think I am stupid, it’s just that when you are a complete beginner you have so many doubts on each step: you don't know for sure what a schema is, how it should be used, if the schema that you are using is correct a.s.o. The net result is that you are never sure why something is not working.

    In the first week I did not know that I can apply an XSLT transformation to see the output from XSV in a nice manner. I continuously asked myself why you choose such an awkward output format ?! Like I said, one week later all become clear to me.

    I am not saying all of this to you just to make complaints but in order to change this state of affairs. I understand that you are very busy and that you do not have time to write a proper documentation (after all you have already done the hardest part - that is writing XSV). If you are interested I can write the documentation for you. IMO a proper documentation to XSV should be found on its web page or a link to such a doc should be provided on the home page. Please tell me what your thoughts on the matter are.

3) I _think_ you are using an out-of-date version of XSV -- compare
your version number to that reported on the home-page.
    I am using XSV 2.8.1 - the latest one.
4) This topic is probably better addressed on xmlschema-dev@w3.org, or
in private email to me.

    Feel free to write in private.
