Hello all,

I tried another approach on converting DTD to Schema, using a DTD2XS 
generator. My thought was that by looking at this generated schema, I could 
change it to something more like what I want.

Problem is (and I am new to this) that when I tried it out on IE 6.1, it 
seemed to work, but when I changed the name of the schema in the xml file, 
it still semed to work.

I do not know if I have made something wrong in the declaration of the 
schema, or if IE does not support schema validation.

The xml files are several megabytes in size, so I can't use the online 
I am using Visual Studio 2003, which seems to have some validation tools 
(buttons), but they are all "greyed out" even though I am working with an 
xml file or an xsd file.

My schema file is named Test.xsd

And this is the declaration in the xml file:
<Root ID="8423" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

So, my questions are:
a) Is there something wrong with the above declaration?
b) Are there some validators that are downloadable?
c) How can I get Visual Studio to validate my documents?
