in the context of xml schemas, DIFFERENT element declarations with the same
name (and possibly ancestors) may appear within different scopes. Let then
be a recursive XML Schema definition. The problem appears when one wants to
select specific nodes in an XML file conforming to this recursive schema. In
particular, all other nodes (with the same name etc -but declared within
other elements-) will be returned as well.

This problem does not appear when using DTDs, as all declarations are global



ps. not all problems can be understood/expressed with ease. sorry...
