Subject: DITA 1.2 Schema Issues



I’m in the process of integrating the latest DTD and Schema changes into the copies we have in our install tree for the next release, and I think I’ve found some bugs in the schemas.


Firstly, schema-based maps are showing errors about not being able to find xml:space and xml:lang top-level attributes from commonElementsGrp.xsd.  I notice in the latest changes, Eric removed the schemaLocation attribute from the import for the XML namespace.  Is there a reason it was dropped?  It’s there other places the namespace is imported (utilitiesDomain, programmingDomain, softwareDomain, and uiDomain).  Adding it back causes our Editor to stop complaining.


Also, learningMapDomain.xsd misspells ‘locktitle’ (‘loctitle’). Looks like this dates back to when it was first added in January, so it’s not a new bug.


Finally, the learning schemas have some class attribute bugs.  The class attribute on lcLom is incorrectly defined as “+ topic/metadata learning-d/lcLom” instead of “+ topic/metadata learningmeta-d/lcLom”, and learningSummaryRef uses "- map/topicref learningmap-d/learningSummaryRef " instead of "+ map/topicref learningmap-d/learningSummaryRef " (- instead of +).


None of these problems are in the DTD versions. I don’t know what the implications are for changing the schemas at this point in the process, but I wanted to raise the issue.




P.S. Arbortext Editor has a Specialization Validation tool (historically, incorrect customer specializations is one of our major tech support headaches). It uncovered all but the first issue.  Going forward, I’m happy to volunteer to run it on future changes as they’re made as a sanity check.
