I don't care so much because I don't use schemas. I don't believe in W3C XML Schema, too rigid. I rather invest my time in doing XSLT that actually makes something happen then in writing schemas. Also, there's still just about no Schema processor that really gets it right. And what a huge waste of time if you really are interested in processing. I understand that it can be useful or necessary to validate against some schema, but I think the whole utility of DTD and Schema for everyday business has long been very much overstated. ... just a soapbox issue of mine.
Now if you have a schema specified but you do not want the xslt processor to pay attention to it, you will probably be out of luck, as best I can tell from recent posts on this.
Right. I suppose one of the ugly workarounds we will see in the future will involve a dom (or other type of processable xml) to be processed through a schema, and a dom to be processed through an xslt, even though both doms are in fact loading the same xml.
Does this seem like a good guess?
