Hi,

the examples at http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/2002/Examples
seem to have old xforms namespaces in them.

The namespaces should be changed to
xmlns:xforms="http://www.w3.org/2002/xforms" (REC)

that is why the submission element is not found with x-smiles 0.82, 
which uses the REC namespace. Also there seems to be some problem with 
the payschema.xsd, as you note. The Working Group will update these 
examples.

(Too see the working page where the bookmark example came from, select 
bookmarks->edit from the X-Smiles menu).

Regards,
  Mikko Honkala
