Hi Paul,

To validate against the Schematron embedded rules you need to use the 
"Validate with" action. This will show a dialog, choose the Schematron 
tab and specify your XSD schema.

You can also use the "Associate schema" action and choose again the 
Schematron tab and specify your XSD schema. If you have also the XML 
Schema associated with the document using the schemaLocation attribute 
for instance then when you invoke the "Validate" action you will get 
*both* the validation against the Schematron rules and the validation 
against your XML Schema.

There is an article on the documentation page that explains how oXygen 
works with Schematron and covers also the cases of embedded rules in XML 
Schema and in Relax NG:
You may find interesting also the sample files from 
[oXygen]/samples/schematron where [oXygen] if the folder where you have 
oXygen installed.

Best Regards,
George Cristian Bina
