XML Schema Part 5: Schemas and Namespaces

As described in the November 2004 issue of CPU - Computer Power User magazine.


A) Downloadable ZIP File

B) The example XML documents

To play with these documents, simply load them into an XML or XML schema editor and test them for validity, or load them into a browser and view the results. Some editors will test for validity automatically as the file is loaded, while others will require that you select to validate.

C) Some XML Editors with Validation Features

See the listing provided in the March 2004 CPU article (http://www.iangraham.org/writing/cpu-articles/mar04/).
Also, Altovia provides a free 'Home use' Version of their XML Spy XML editor. This editor has pretty good diagnostic messages for XML schema errors, and can be a useful tool for learning about XML schema. The package is available form Altovia at http://www.xmlspy.com/download_spy_home.html.
