My XML document contains things like:

<Unit External="Te/m" Internal="Te/m" Zero="0." Scale="1." Offset="0.">Te/m :: Te/m</Unit>
<Unit External="kW/C" Internal="kW/C" Zero="0." Scale="1." Offset="0.">kW/C :: kW/C</Unit>

Vaildation against:

<xs:element name="Unit">
	<xs:complexType>
		<xs:simpleContent>
			<xs:extension base="xs:string">
				<xs:attribute name="Type" type="xs:string" use="optional"></xs:attribute>
				<xs:attribute name="External" type="xs:string" use="required"></xs:attribute>
				<xs:attribute name="Internal" type="xs:string" use="required"></xs:attribute>
				<xs:attribute name="Zero" type="xs:double" use="required"></xs:attribute>
				<xs:attribute name="Scale" type="xs:double" use="required"></xs:attribute>
				<xs:attribute name="Offset" type="xs:double" use="required"></xs:attribute>
			</xs:extension>
		</xs:simpleContent>
	</xs:complexType>
</xs:element>

using MXSXML4 fails claiming that  and  are illegal characters. If I use XML spy to do the validation, it doesn't complain. Anyone
have any idea why this happens? And what can I do to get the MSXML parser to work??
