schemaLocation is causing an error:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<lom xmlns="http://ltsc.ieee.org/xsd/LOM"
     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
     xsi:schemaLocation="http://ltsc.ieee.org/xsd/LOM lomcustom.xsd">

It worrks when i remove the "xsi:schemaLocation" reference:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<lom xmlns="http://ltsc.ieee.org/xsd/LOM"
     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

well, your parser tries to validate the XML using the schema
the xsi:schemaLocation is the locator of the schema
It consists of two parts
The part before the space is the namespace URI
the part after the space is the schema URL
So in order for this to work, your parser has to find the physical schema at the URL
This means that Iomcustom.xsd needs to be in the same directory as the XML (if this is a local validation)
you can make it a full valid URL to make it work

If you remove the schema, there simply is no validation, just wellformednes checking
If you are happy with that, just remove the xsi:schemaLocation
but this might have some unpleasant consequences further up the chain

cheers

how can i make it "full valid URL"?  The "lomcustom.xsd" is local to the xml.

if you have to pull the schema from a server use http://....
if it is local on disk,
use the relative uri eg. "schemas/lomcustom.xsd"
or keep the XML file as it is and put the schema in the same directory

cheers
