Hey folks,
according to the Xerces API it should be possible to search an entire DOM-Document for an Element with a specific ID using getElementById(String elementId).
I have to declare id-Attributes of my XML Document as id-Attributes by use of a DTD or Schema. XML-Schema is my choice!
With a DTD all works fine, but when I use a XML Schema the method-call getElementById() returns 'null' instead of the expected Element-object.
Any ideas
