Hi all,
I want to handle null values according to the XML Schema Spec, i.e. using the following definition :
<xsd:element name="MYDATE" type="xsd:date" nillable="true" />
and then in the XML doc :
<MYDATE xsi:nil="true"/>
To validate my document, I'm using XML Spy 4.0 beta 2 which uses MSXML Parser (I installed v4.0) I guess.
My problem is that I get an error message : "Invalid value for date in element MYDATE". Checking the MSXML Parser doc I found that sometimes "nillable" appears as "nullable" and "nil" as "nill".
Is there a problem with MS implementation here ? Should I try another validating parser ? I don't think I have namespace problem in my shema.
