Draft of W3C Note available for review: Associating Schemas with XML documents 1.0

Discussion in 'XML' started by Henry S. Thompson, Feb 10, 2010.

  1. The XML Recommendation reserves the use of all names beginning
    with the letters 'xml'. Because of this clause, the need to be
    able to provide hints for associating schemas with XML documents,
    and the desire for parallelism with the xml-stylesheet PI used
    to associate stylesheets with XML documents, ISO's SC 34/WG1 has
    requested to be able to use 'xml-model' for a PI target in an
    optional processing instruction that would allow the association
    of schemas with XML documents.

    Due to the desire to maximize interoperability for such a feature
    and due to the fact that an ISO publication could not be made
    freely available, the XML Core WG decided to work with SC34
    representatives to develop a mutually acceptable specification
    and publish it as a freely available WG Note (whose basic contents
    may also be published in parallel by ISO).

    Therefore, the XML Core WG has developed a draft First Edition
    of "Associating Schemas with XML documents" which is expected
    to become a WG Note. Our first draft is currently available
    for general review and comments:

    Associating Schemas with XML documents 1.0 (First Edition)

    This specification draws heavily on the parsing of processing
    instruction pseudo-attributes as described in the latest
    Associating Style Sheets with XML documents Version 1.0 2nd Edition
    Draft PER published at
    http://www.w3.org/XML/2009/12/xml-stylesheet/ .

    This current draft has no official status. The Working Group
    is publishing this draft to allow for general review by
    W3C members and the public at this time in anticipation of
    its being submitted as a WG Note at a future date.

    Please submit any comments on this document to [1];
    public archives [2] are available.
