Re: XML validation fails when schema includes another schema

My apologies to those who read the message and found the well-formed errors.  I 
had to change some things for the public forum because of confidentiality 
issues and non-disclosure, etc.  The working example does not have those 
errors, and I was able to run it through XSV without complaint.  I was also not 
aware of the proper use of the url's "www.example.org" and "www.example.com" 
instead of the ones that I used for schemalocation.

I am thinking that this is an MSXML4.0 bug, but curiously I cannot find any 
other references to the problem.  There has been no response to my question on 
the microsoft forum.  One possibility is that I am validating the document 
during the load of the xml instead of using a schemacache.

At least I know there is nothing wrong with the schema now.

Thanks -

Ron Thompson
