Subject: Re: [office] Question about doctype


I'm not sure if an example for assigning a schema to office document is 
required or useful.

Since we did not deliver only a Relax-NG and an XSD schema, but not a 
DTD, it is not possible to provide a DOCTYPE for Open Office files.

Relax NG itself does not define a way for an XML document to associate 
itself with a RELAX NG pattern (see 

For XSD, the schema is derived from the namespace of the root element. 
Optionally, an "schemaLocation" attribute can be specified, but since 
this is an option only, I'm, not sure if we should use axactly this 
attribute as an example.
