Whenever you refer to a component in a namespace, you need to use a
qualified name. So it should be
having declared
xmlns:foo=" <http://foo/> http://foo"

Subject: Recursive XSD with targetNamespace

Hello everyone.

I have a recursively defined type called "Item" and the schema works fine at
first. However, if I specify a targetNamespace in the XSD, Visual Studio
gives me an error claiming that "Item" is not defined (when it's used within
the definition of Item itself.)

Here's a greatly simplified schema that still exposes the problem:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
   <xsd:complexType name="Item">
           <xsd:element name="SerialNumber" />
               <xsd:element name="Item" type="Item" />

If I remove the targetNamespace attribute this works fine. Why is this
causing a problem?
