Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] DocBook XMLschema in Visual Studio.Net

That's the lack of VS.NET.

XML schema for DocBook doesn't define target namespace. I think that
VS.NET can't validate against schemas without target namespace. This
might be problem.

>What is the status of the DocBook XML Schema? If we use it in VS.Net, will it be possible to switch to the DocBook DTD for processing or are there compatibility issues between the two?

I think that XML Schema is still experimental but dependency on XML
schema should not affect processing tools as they usually didn't rely on

XML schema for DocBook is available in CVS repository at
