RE: [xml-dev] anyAttribute


So the fact that <anyAttribute> appears in the W3 XMLSchema's schema
doesn't mean that an arbitrary attribute of my own making may be 
introduced into a schema conforming to the W3 schema.

If I placed <anyAttrbute> in *my* schema, I would expect that instance 
documents would be able to contain attributes that aren't explicitly 
defined by my schema.

I'd expect the same to be true for my schema, which is merely an 
instance document of the W3 schema.
