XML validation is the process of checking a document written in XML (eXtensible Markup Language) to confirm that it is both well-formed and also "valid" in that it follows a defined structure. A well-formed document follows the basic syntactic rules of XML, which are the same for all XML documents.[1] A valid document also respects the rules dictated by a particular DTD or XML schema.[2]

StandardsEdit

  • OASIS CAM is a standard specification that provides contextual validation of content and structure that is more flexible than basic schema validations.
  • Schematron, a method for advanced XML validation.
