   RE: [xml-dev] Word 2003 custom schema limitations

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi All,

I made played with the schema and made the inline elements (footnote, 
acronym, emphasis, etc.) global and that solved the problem.  So I guess 
the moral of the story is that I should have just left everything global. 
Hopefully this will help others in the future.  And I hope that Word 2007 
doesn't have this limitation!

I've run into this before but not in Word.   In the SGML Declaration,
you could limit the depth of recursive elements.  I had to do that for
some projects.  Word must have an inbuilt analog to the Declaration

I'd be interested in knowing how many XML systems have these
restrictions and how they are exposed (error msgs seems sort of
Draconian) and configured (hardwired or in an option box).

Hi Jeff,

Yes, there is a lot of recursion (in sections, lists, etc.).   I am just

surprised that no one has run into this before.  Maybe no one is using
Word to edit XML using custom schemas.
