Re: Problem with validation against Schema.

Hello Henry.

I followed your instructions and the outcome is:
Removal of the xsi: prefix from the elements raises this Error massage: “The
element 'proposals' is used but not declared in the DTD/Schema”.
I tried not to mention the xsi attribute at all, something like this:

<proposals noNamespaceSchemaLocation="file:///C:/My
Documents/proposal1.xsd">

But in this case the processor doesn’t even bother to locate the schema. It
ignores it.
Only when the xsi: prefix is attached to all elements the schema is located
and checked for well-formedness. But - no validation performed.

Please advise

Thanks
Shay.
