Basic XML questions are out of scope on XSL-List. XSL-List is for discussions that are directly relevant to XSLT and/or XSL-FO.

A basic xml question. Can an element that is required per the schema, be empty and the file still valid?

For example, if I hav an element id as mandatory per the schema,


<otherelement>others </otherelement>


is this still valid xml?
