For our purposes, the word "document" refers not only to traditional documents, like this one, but also to the myriad of other XML "data formats". SGML has been the standard, vendor-independent way to maintain repositories of structured documentation for more than a decade, but it is not well suited to serving documents over the web (for a number of technical reasons beyond the scope of this article).
An XML schema is a description of a type of XML document, typically expressed in terms of constraints on the structure and content of documents of that type, above and beyond the basic syntactical constraints imposed by XML itself.
Even Jon Skeet cannot parse HTML using regular expressions.
This validator tries to check these as well, which makes its results much more applicable to real-world applications: namespaces in . The XML specification defines a standard way to add markup to documents.The number of applications currently being developed that are based on, or make use of, XML documents is truly amazing (particularly when you consider that XML is not yet a year old)!
