I was wondering if someone might be able to help me out. I have been stumped on this for over a day now and figured I would open a thread on the issue.
We have decided to exchange data with our clients using cXML as the standard data format. cXML provided me with a DTD to use so we can make sure the data being exchanged is in the right format. One of our clients has decided to use a BizTalk Schema for validating rather than a DTD. I am using xmlspy to generate a BizTalk Schema from the DTD. Generating the BizTalk Schema works great but then when I try to validate a sample xml file I get an error. Below is a sample of some of my generated BizTalk Schema and sample xml file.


The Error that I'm getting is this:
Required attribute 'xml:lang' of parent element 'Name' expected before first child element.
What does this mean? It is before the first child element. I have noticed if I change the xml:lang to xml_lang in the BizTalk Schema and in the sample xml file, it works great. If it is a namespace issue I would expect an error in my BizTalk Schema but it validates without any problems. I had a similar issue when I generated a W3C Schema but I resolved that issue. I realize what the xml:lang is used for but why is it not validating against my BizTalk Schema? Has anyone ran across this issue or does anyone have any suggestions? I can provide more code sniplets if need be.
Thanks in advance for your time,
