Hi again,

So just to make sure I have it straight...the sForS should be able to be
validated based on the recent work of the WG.  If it is not currently
validated, by say Xerces, its because Xerces is a bit behind on the latest
changes/specs.  However, in order to embed XML Schema elements within an XML
*instance* document now, either the parser of choice must validate the
schema and/or import the schema as a workaround (as Dare suggested) or be
set to not validate said instance document at all.  Given this, do you think
its a safe bet to not validate now with the hopes that future revs of Xerces
will function as expected (i.e. parse and validate the sForS)?
