Hello Daniel, hello all,

  yes but it's not specific to libxml(2), it's due to the fact that
namespaces were added to XML after the main spec was released ,
and as a result XML-1.0 and DTD validation are ignorant of namespaces.

I see. Wasn't sure about that.

- DTD validation for documents with a default namespace,
  declared on the root element should be possible using

  DTD validation of documents with namespaces are possible.
You must define the prefixes in the DTD exactly as you will find them 
in the instance, that's all.

OK, than it's clear.

Using "--postvalid", the document validates.

that's an error, but I can't reproduce it with the currnet code

Oh, i'll check it with v2.6.2, i just found
"a posteriori DTD validation fixes"
in the "News".


Thanx & Ciao, Markus
