The first is the right interpretation of local namespaces.

Subject: locally scoped element decls and namespaces


I have a hopefully simple question concerning locally
scoped element decls and namespaces. Here is an example
schema:

<schema targetNamespace='urn:person-schema'>
        <type name='Person'>
                <element name='fname' type='string' />
                <element name='lname' type='string' />
        </type>
        <element name='Person' type='Person' />
</schema>

Given this schema, here is an instance:

<t:Person xmlns:t='urn:person-schema'
  
xmlns:xsi='http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema/instance'>
        <fname>Helen</fname>
        <lname>Jones</lname>
</t:Person>

Is this right or should fname and lname be bound to the
same namespace as Person, i.e.: 

<t:Person xmlns:t='urn:person-schema'
  
xmlns:xsi='http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema/instance'>
        <t:fname>Helen</t:fname>
        <t:lname>Jones</t:lname>
</t:Person>


Cordially from Corvallis,
