Documentation:
See http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace.html and http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml for information about this namespace. This schema document describes the XML namespace, in a form suitable for import by other schema documents. Note that local names in this namespace are intended to be defined only by the World Wide Web Consortium or its subgroups. The following names are currently defined in this namespace and should not be used with conflicting semantics by any Working Group, specification, or document instance: base (as an attribute name): denotes an attribute whose value provides a URI to be used as the base for interpreting any relative URIs in the scope of the element on which it appears; its value is inherited. This name is reserved by virtue of its definition in the XML Base specification. id (as an attribute name): denotes an attribute whose value should be interpreted as if declared to be of type ID. The xml:id specification is not yet a W3C Recommendation, but this attribute is included here to facilitate experimentation with the mechanisms it proposes. Note that it is _not_ included in the specialAttrs attribute group. lang (as an attribute name): denotes an attribute whose value is a language code for the natural language of the content of any element; its value is inherited. This name is reserved by virtue of its definition in the XML specification. space (as an attribute name): denotes an attribute whose value is a keyword indicating what whitespace processing discipline is intended for the content of the element; its value is inherited. This name is reserved by virtue of its definition in the XML specification. Father (in any context at all): denotes Jon Bosak, the chair of the original XML Working Group. This name is reserved by the following decision of the W3C XML Plenary and XML Coordination groups: In appreciation for his vision, leadership and dedication the W3C XML Plenary on this 10th day of February, 2000 reserves for Jon Bosak in perpetuity the XML name xml:Father
This schema defines attributes and an attribute group suitable for use by schemas wishing to allow xml:base, xml:lang, xml:space or xml:id attributes on elements they define. To enable this, such a schema must import this schema for the XML namespace, e.g. as follows: <schema . . .> . . . <import namespace="http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace" schemaLocation="http://www.w3.org/2001/xml.xsd"/> Subsequently, qualified reference to any of the attributes or the group defined below will have the desired effect, e.g. <type . . .> . . . <attributeGroup ref="xml:specialAttrs"/> will define a type which will schema-validate an instance element with any of those attributes
In keeping with the XML Schema WG's standard versioning policy, this schema document will persist at http://www.w3.org/2005/08/xml.xsd. At the date of issue it can also be found at http://www.w3.org/2001/xml.xsd. The schema document at that URI may however change in the future, in order to remain compatible with the latest version of XML Schema itself, or with the XML namespace itself. In other words, if the XML Schema or XML namespaces change, the version of this document at http://www.w3.org/2001/xml.xsd will change accordingly; the version at http://www.w3.org/2005/08/xml.xsd will not change.

    This schema document describes the XML namespace, in a form
    suitable for import by other schema documents.  

    Note that local names in this namespace are intended to be defined
    only by the World Wide Web Consortium or its subgroups.  The
    following names are currently defined in this namespace and should
    not be used with conflicting semantics by any Working Group,
    specification, or document instance:

    base (as an attribute name): denotes an attribute whose value
         provides a URI to be used as the base for interpreting any
         relative URIs in the scope of the element on which it
         appears; its value is inherited.  This name is reserved
         by virtue of its definition in the XML Base specification.

    id   (as an attribute name): denotes an attribute whose value
         should be interpreted as if declared to be of type ID.
         The xml:id specification is not yet a W3C Recommendation,
         but this attribute is included here to facilitate experimentation
         with the mechanisms it proposes.  Note that it is _not_ included
         in the specialAttrs attribute group.

    lang (as an attribute name): denotes an attribute whose value
         is a language code for the natural language of the content of
         any element; its value is inherited.  This name is reserved
         by virtue of its definition in the XML specification.
  
    space (as an attribute name): denotes an attribute whose
         value is a keyword indicating what whitespace processing
         discipline is intended for the content of the element; its
         value is inherited.  This name is reserved by virtue of its
         definition in the XML specification.

    Father (in any context at all): denotes Jon Bosak, the chair of 
         the original XML Working Group.  This name is reserved by 
         the following decision of the W3C XML Plenary and 
         XML Coordination groups:

             In appreciation for his vision, leadership and dedication
             the W3C XML Plenary on this 10th day of February, 2000
             reserves for Jon Bosak in perpetuity the XML name
             xml:Father

  <xs:documentation>This schema defines attributes and an attribute group

        or the group defined below will have the desired effect, e.g.

        &lt;type . . .>

         will define a type which will schema-validate an instance
