Validating xml online accommodating culturally diverse learners
The reason is that XML software should be small, fast, and compatible.
HTML browsers are allowed to display HTML documents with errors (like missing end tags). A "well formed" XML document is not the same as a "valid" XML document. In addition, it must conform to a document type definition.
The validator checks for well formedness first, meaning that your XML file must be parsable using a DOM/SAX parser, and only then does it validate your XML against the XML Schema.
The validator will report fatal errors, non-fatal errors and warnings.
RXP is part of the LT-XML 2 system, which is available from the Language Technology Group at the University of Edinburgh.
As an alternative you can also try our non-DTD-based validator.
In this page you can check the validity of your XML Schema (XSD) file. The library used in this page is jaxp, Java API for XML Processing, version 1.4, from Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_06-b24).
If you find yourself using this service frequently, I suggest you download RXP or LT-XML 2 and use it locally.
You can verify any signed XML document in this demo.
