Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-1224) Public Comment:Conformance / validation / MathML redux (ODF 1.2 CD01)

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-1224?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=21291#action_21291 ] 

Patrick Durusau commented on OFFICE-1224:


There are three possible MathML documents:

1) MathML - well-formed
2) MathML/DTD
3) MathML/Schema

requirements differ: "However, in many circumstances, especially while producing or editing MathML, it is useful to use a language definition, to constrain the editing process or to check the correctness of generated files. The following section, Section A.2 Using the MathML DTD, discusses the MathML DTD, which forms a normative part of the specification. Following that, Section A.3 Using the MathML XML Schema, discusses an alternative language definition using the W3C XML schema language, [XMLSchemas]. One should note that the schema definition of the language is currently stricter than the DTD version. That is, a schema validating processor will declare invalid documents that are declared valid by a (DTD) validating XML parser. This is partly due to the fact that the XML schema language may express additional constraints not expressable in the DTD, and partly due to the fact that for reasons of compatibility with earlier releases, the DTD is intentionally forgiving in some places and does not enforce constraints that are specified in the text of this specification."

See: http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML/appendixa.html

Suggestions on how this relates to the use of  a non-validating processor for the document? Does that apply to other XML documents embedded in the main document?
