I am using MODS to record metadata for video files. I keep getting an
error that says, "This schema does not appear to be valid by itself ( as
a part of another schema it might still be OK): Duplicated attribute
type found!" when I try to open the MODS schema in XMLSPY. I am trying
to register the schema with Oracle XDB, and it also gives me the same

The duplicated type attribute that the error is referring to is found in
the definition of the complex types "titleInfoType" , "nameType" and
"relatedItemType". In these definitions the "type" attribute is defined
as part of the MODS schema and also included as an attribute group
reference to "xlink:simpleLink".

Could anyone on this list please suggest a way to eliminate this error?

Thank you,
