Hi All, I am new to xml and I am wondering about something. I thought that if I had a #REQUIRED Qualifier in the dtd, then the attribute would be required in the xml. But in the code I have here, notice that the idTo attribute for <TO> is required in the dtd, but I do not have it in the xml. When I display the xml in Internet Explorer, it does not show errors. Does anyone know why this is? Am I misunderstanding something or what? Many thanks to you!! Barry
Hi Barry.. There is nothing wrong with your understanding or with IE. By default the parser within IE is set NOT TO VALIDATE the xml file agaist DTD. Just try the following html with script to check your xml file.
