Thanks for clarifying. I’d forgotten about that. I suppose my question then is: since W3C is committed to maintaining xml.xsd on the web, and it is pretty trivial to either (a) cache this document so it isn’t fetched every time a MODS file is being verified or (b) modify the xml.xsd to point to a local institution’s copy, would it not be better to let this stand, rather than take on the task of maintaining a compatible copy of xml.xsd? But of course it is not me who will be maintaining this document, so I don’t mean to raise a fuss. best, Erik Hetzner
