[xml] Fwd: [lxml-dev] lxml RelaxNG validation on hand-built documents


any idea what might trigger this?

The main API calls we use are:

        ctx = xmlRelaxNGNewParserCtxt(filename)
        schema = xmlRelaxNGParse(ctx)
        // create doc
        vc = xmlRelaxNGNewValidCtxt(schema)
        xmlRelaxNGValidateDoc(vc, doc)
        // change doc
        // repeat validation with schema

I've had a very curious issue that I'm trying to find the cause about.
Basically - if I try to validate a document tree that was dynamically
created by lxml with a relaxNG schema, the validation step passses
even if there are invalid elements. If I serialize that same tree to a
string and parse it once again, the newly created XML document fails
the validation. Given that I expect to process fairly large trees, I'd
rather not have to copy so much nformation in memory on every attempt
to validate a document.

Is there any reason why lxml wouldn't validate items that have been
newly created and inserted into the tree, or this is a bug? How would
I make sure a tree is valid, according to a schema, before I
serialized and saved it ?

Basically what i do is:

schema = etree.RelaxNG(file="schema.rng")

doc = etree.fromstring("<valid></valid>")





It's really making me think I don't get some point in the whole
validation process. In hindsight - I had the same issues wiht the Perl
LibXML bindings at some point in the past. Is it maybe Libxml -related
