Subject: Re: [ubl] The trailing-space bug

Arguably none of the tools is 100% conformant (it's like ALGOL 69 all over  
again).  However, XML Spy commands a large market share, and *those* folks  
think it is 100% conformant.  On that basis, just as it would be a bad  
idea to *only* validate with Spy, it would also be a bad idea to send out  
UBL Schemas/XML-files that *don't* validate with Spy (sub-issue is that  
different versions of Spy may behave differently, but let's do what we  

My experience is that the only way to do a Schema that works for an  
acceptable share of the market is to validate against as many Schema  
validators as possible, and only use features/constructs that work with  
all of them.

Java-based editors (like Topologi) generally use Xerces-J for validation,  
and the Schema-WG seems to feel that this is currently the most correct of  
the validators.
