Flex will only check for well formatted XML. It cannot check it against an XSD/DTD etc.

If you HAD to check it against an XSD and were running PHP or nearly any other server side language then you can just validate in that before passing it through to Flex.

If you are using AMF as the transporter then you can easily send an error when it doesn't validate and have Flex handle the error as a standard error event.

I have not ever heard of a flex library that does this. I still believe my answer is correct and should be at least awarded some points.

If there IS a library then it's best that its name and URL be posted as an answer by the author in the question for future use by people who need to know this same answer.

I have scoured the net for such a library and never come up against one.
