Subject: RE: [xliff] Fw: XLIFF 1.1 Draft 2b

This is how to change the xliff-values-1-1.xsd schema to validate "x-*".

I made a total 3 changes to validate Text2.xlf.

(1) Change reg exp in <xsd:pattern>. Old: "x-[a-z]". New: "x-[a-z\-]+". The
old expression was "x-" followed by one lower case roman letter. The new exp
is "x-" followed by one or more lower case letter or dash (-). Upper case
letters are not allowed, but the exp could be enhanced to allow them and
digits too, eg, "x-[a-zA-Z0-9\-]+".

(2) Changed <xsd:enumeration> to <xsd:pattern>. This is required otherwise
the pattern only applies to the enumerated values.

NOTE: Unfortunately, XML Spy 4 does not catch the error if a value doesn't
match one of the patterns.
NOTE: The other issue is that a tool using intellisense can't list the

	<xsd:simpleType name="context-typeValueList">
			<xsd:documentation>Values for the attribute
		<xsd:restriction base="xsd:string">
			<xsd:pattern value="x-[a-z\-]+"/>
			<xsd:pattern value="Database">
					<xsd:documentation>??? {To be defined (and all
			<xsd:pattern value="Element">

(3) PRACTICAL ISSUE: I also changed the xliff-1-1.xsd to make the
<group|trans-unit|bin-unit> elements optional. I added minOccurs="0" in
<xsd:choice>. I suspect this change should NOT be permanent. It may be that
the test file should have one of the elements.

<xsd:complexType name="ElemType_group">
			<xsd:element name="context-group" type="xlf:ElemType_context-group"
minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
			<xsd:element name="count-group" type="xlf:ElemType_count-group"
minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
			<xsd:element name="prop-group" type="xlf:ElemType_prop-group"
minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
			<xsd:any namespace="##other" processContents="strict" minOccurs="0"
			<xsd:element name="note" type="xlf:ElemType_note" minOccurs="0"

		<xsd:choice minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">      <!-- ddomeny added
minOccurs -->

			<xsd:element name="group" type="xlf:ElemType_group"/>
			<xsd:element name="trans-unit" type="xlf:ElemType_trans-unit"/>
			<xsd:element name="bin-unit" type="xlf:ElemType_bin-unit"/>

Yves has been having some mail problems with the OASIS mailing lists,  so
he's asked me to forward these onto you.

These documents will be the basis for Tuesday's teleconference.
