Re: [xml-dev] How to match targetNamespace URIs in XML Schemas tonamespace declarations in XML instances when the targetNamespaceattribute contains characters that are illegal in URIs?

1 is the best choice.  Namespace names are matched character-by-character
(or rather codepoint-by-codepoint), even if they are not valid URIs.
