xhtml in xml element

Discussion in 'XML' started by Wole Ogunremi, Nov 28, 2004.

  1. I guess this is a well asked question but it is tripping me up!

    I'm putting a forum together allowing xhtml markup content. I am validating
    against a schema but getting "Could not find schema information for element
    <elementName>...

    I would appreciate if anyone could advice where I am going wrong. TIA

    Here's my xsd:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

    Well how are you validating that document? Which XML parser are you
    using, how are you using it?
    When I save your files here locally and use the following JScript to
    validate with MSXML 5 or MSXML 4

    var xmlSchemaCache = new ActiveXObject('Msxml2.XMLSchemaCache.5.0');
    xmlSchemaCache.add('http://www.test.com/Topics.xsd',
    'test2004112801Xsd.xml');

    var xmlDocument = new ActiveXObject('Msxml2.DOMDocument.5.0');
    xmlDocument.schemas = xmlSchemaCache;

    xmlDocument.async = false;
    var valid = xmlDocument.load('test2004112801.xml');

    then I get an error message
    'Die ID 'thrd6' kommt doppelt vor.'
    meaning the ID 'thrd6' is duplicated. And indeed looking into your
    instance you have:



    > <tes:SubThread ParentThreadID="thrd5">
    > <tes:ThreadID>thrd6</tes:ThreadID>
    > <tes:AuthorID>Anonymous</tes:AuthorID>
    > <tes:Created>
    > <tes:OnDate>2004-11-27</tes:OnDate>
    > <tes:AtTime>14:46:11</tes:AtTime>
    > </tes:Created>



    > <tes:SubThread ParentThreadID="thrd5">
    > <tes:ThreadID>thrd6</tes:ThreadID>
    > <tes:AuthorID>Anonymous</tes:AuthorID>
    > <tes:Created>
    > <tes:OnDate>2004-11-27</tes:OnDate>
    > <tes:AtTime>15:12:06</tes:AtTime>
    > </tes:Created>


    so that instance is not valid.

    Also note that you shouldn't use the type xs:ID for element values, it
    should only be used on attribute values to be compatible with the XML
    1.0 specification and the XML DTD type ID. You can use xs:unique or
    xs:key to define such element values as unique.

    Thanks for your reply. I am developing using Visual Studio .NET 2003. I'm
    working within the XML designer.

    You are right about the mixed up IDs but actually the xml I pasted here is
    an edited subset of my data. The real file respects ID uniqueness, so that's
    not the issue. But thanks for the point on not using xs:ID for elements.

    The errors I get when I ask the designer to validate the file are all "Could
    not find schema information for the element
    'http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml:b'" and similar for the other elements within
    the Content node.

    Hope you can see some sense in it. I will email you the full file if you
    don't mind.

    TIA
    Wole

    I see, then you should post in a Visual Studio .NET group or .NET xml
    group, I think you have done that already but if your particular problem
    is with that tool then you should mention it so that people can help
    that use that tool too.

    No, let's take that to the proper newsgroup, there someone using that
    tool can help.

  7. I don't immediately see anything wrong with your use of
    wildcards/XHTML. Once the id problem already mentioned is patched,
    and the namespaces are lined up, your instance [from this message]
    validates without error with your schema [subsequent message], using
    XSV [1]
