Definitions

Words used in these terms and conditions have the following meanings:

Schema

An XML Schema consists of components such as type definitions and element declarations. These can be used to assess the validity of well-formed element information items (as defined in [XML-Infoset]), and furthermore may specify augmentations to those items and their descendants. This augmentation makes explicit information which may have been implicit in the original document, such as default values for attributes and elements and the types of element and attribute information items. The process of schema validation consists of determining whether an element information item satisfies the constraints embodied in the components of an XML Schema, and if so of adding any appropriate augmentations. For detail of schema definition please see XML Schema Part 1: Structures. Available at: http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/WD-xmlschema-1-20000407/
