Re: [xml-dev] Schema-aware spell checker?

I’d be surprised if there were such a specialized tool.

What if you processed the schemas with XSLT so that you have a plain text output that you can spellcheck in an editor or word processing application? The rules which attributes to process and where to split their contents (dashes, underscores, \p{Ll} followed by \p{Lu}, etc.) should be quite straightforward to translate into XSLT templates.

Hi Folks,

I was given a bunch of XML schema files. A cursory examination revealed spelling errors, as illustrated by this element declaration:

<xs:element name="repititionRate" type="t:RepetitionRate" />

Notice that the element name is misspelled (should be repetitionRate).

There are many schema files and some are quite lengthy; I'm sure that I would fail to catch all the spelling errors.

It would be nice if there was a tool that could automatically catch spelling errors. The tool would need to be pretty clever, I imagine. For example, it would need to detect that in this name:


the "t" is a namespace prefix and "RepetitionRate" is a two-part name consisting of "Repetition" (spelled correctly) and "Rate" (also spelled correctly). The tool would need to detect that in this name:


there is "repitition" (misspelled) and "Rate" (spelled correctly).

Does such a schema-aware spelling tool exist?
