RE: [xml-dev] If I want to use catalogs for XSDs, must document instances contain a schemaLocation?

While the W3C Guidance is useful, it may not be what determines what and how
Victor does this. Where and for whom Victor is writing the specification

I have prepared several schemas as part of OASIS specifications. Those
schemas followed OASIS rules for naming and location and support of RDDL.
Other groups have their own rules. Within the schemas mentioned above, there
were specific references to UN CEFACT schemas and to OGC schemas, each
addressable, but with slightly different rules. They also referenced an
older namespace with a URN initially defined in an RFC.

In short, there is no universal "correct" way to do this. If you are
preparing a Standard, then the Standards Development Organization (SDO) may
well have explicit requirements and expectations.

The W3C has already published guidance on this topic: you should look at the
