   RE: [xml-dev] Validating XML documents containing xml:*

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Ahh, but which spec are we talking about conforming to?

There's an inconsistency between the Schema spec and the XInclude spec, see 
http://weblogs.asp.net/cazzu/archive/2005/01/10/XsdAndXInclude.aspx "So, 
either you modify all your schemas to that each and every element includes 
those attributes (either by inheriting from a base type or using an 
attribute group reference), or you validation is bound to fail if someone 
decides to include something." The problem is that we get bug reports from 
people wanting to use XInclude with schemas they can't fix up to be 
compatible with XInclude.

Stan talks about the rationale behind Microsoft's approach to addressing 
this in http://blogs.msdn.com/xmlteam/archive/2005/05/11/416639.aspx
