    Are inline schema (i.e a schema included in the XML document)
    compliant with the W3C recommendations on schema? I keep reading about
    them in .net articles on webservices.
    I don't understand how this can be the a valid approach, as far as I
    know the only way to include information on the structure of an XML
    document is by enclosing the DTD in the XML document.
    Am I missing something or is this just a MS approach of XML?

    I think an inline schema is allowed and supported by the XML schema
    specification although I can't tell you whether MS uses it in a way
    complying with the standard or has invented something of its own. Do you
    have an example of an MS inline schema?
