XML Validation using XSD in IE 6.0


My Xml is not getting correctly validated against the XSD.
I expect the browser to through atleast some kind of generic error messages.But it is not happening.I have installed MSXML4 in my PC

My Xml file is below


Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <?xml version="1.0"?>
  2. <note
  3. xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  4. xsi:SchemaLocation="note.xsd">
  5. <from>Jani</from>
  6. <heading>Reminder</heading>
  7. <body>Don't forget me this weekend!</body>
  8. </note>
I purposefully removed the <to> tag from the above xml to see some errors.

My Xsd file is below
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <?xml version="1.0"?>
  2. <xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
  3. targetNamespace="http://www.w3schools.com"
  4. xmlns="http://www.w3schools.com"
  5. elementFormDefault="qualified"><xs:element name="note">
  6.     <xs:complexType>
  7.       <xs:sequence>
  8.     <xs:element name="to"  type="xs:string" />
  9.     <xs:element name="from" type="xs:string"/>
  10.     <xs:element name="heading" type="xs:string"/>
  11.     <xs:element name="body" type="xs:string"/>
  12.       </xs:sequence>
  13.     <xs:attribute name="to" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
  14.     </xs:complexType>
  15. </xs:element></xs:schema>
Both the note.xml and note.xsd files are in the same folder.
Can somebody guide why i am not getting any error?

There is no "to" element in your xml. what ever sequence you mentioned in XSD, they must be in XML. Also in your xsd, you mentioned "to" is required, but the same is not available in xml. how can u expect that ur xml will be validated????

You are correct Satyam.
There is no <To> element in Xml.I purposefully removed it
So browser should throw me an error.
I am not getting any error.Why?

validating XSD with IE seems not to be the easiest thing to do.... found some (maybe) useful links on google.

Could you show us the code you are using to validate your xml?

Or are you expecting (incorrectly) that IE will validate your xml upon opening of the xml file in it?

sorry, but.... it's IE after all (in my opinion the worst browser available). it doesn't even handle XHTML!

IE 6 doesn't automatically validate the xml; it just renders what it gets. You need to explicitly tell it to do so through indirect opening of the xml using other code.

I am no XML expert (by far), but..
Why would you want to validate this with IE6?

Surely there is a better tool for this than a browser, released 7 years ago, which was at the time of it's release like 10 years behind on pretty much everything...
