Oxygen is a structured XML Editor, Notepad is just a plain text editor. 
Notepad is oblivious to any DTD/XSD demands. Just because you can do 
something in Notepad does not therefore mean it is valid and well-formed to 
your target DTD/XSD. You need to run validation tests externally to Notepad. 
Oxygen, being a structured editor does the validation tests inline to your 
editing process. Whenever the current file is not valid and well-formed to 
the target DTD.

If you use Notepad then use a tool like xmllint to test whether your XML 
instance is valid and well-formed. 100% if Oxygen shows that it is not, then 
so will xmllint.

Hope this helps,
