ab11,

Namespaces allow the use of identical names in different contexts or vocabularies. For instance, both a building and a person may have HEIGHT, and you'd like to use "HEIGHT" as an element name to represent both concepts. However, if you wanted to put both a person and a building into the same XML document, you'd have to qualify which HEIGHT you were referring to in each case. That's what targetNamespace is for -- when you use a schema to validate a document, you can state which namespace the declarations in the schema are from. eg. PERSON and BUILDING would be defined in different target namespaces.

Regards,
WMB
