Hello everybody!
 
I will use Adobe FrameMaker 12 in author mode in an upcomming project, and I will continue testing it for two more weeks. As I am new to XML and document creation, I finished an online tutorial about XML and started now to create a document. I entered all files in one directory, then tested & corrected the contents with oXygen XML Author 16. Now, I opened the same files under FrameMaker 12 and have a lot of errors. As XML is a standard, I think that my code is not the problem. Do you have an idea why one & the same documents are evaluated differently by the two tools?
 
Thank you for your suggestions!

Hi,

Oxygen is an XML development environment. It validates a document based on its pure XML properties. Meaning it will check the schema, validates the schema, checks the XML document for wellformedness and validates the XML document against the schema. If all of that is OK, it will consider the document as valid. Unless in authoring mode, Oxygen will not attempt to layout an XML document for a nice view, so it does not need additional smeantics to understand the document... Oxygen simply does a pure technical validation and does not need to "understand" the document

FrameMaker is NOT an XML editing environment. It is a page setting tool for publishing that happens to understand XML on input. Now recently FrameMaker has done some extra effort to put itself in the DITA authoring business, but still it is no pure XML editing tool
As such, you will need some additional semantics, read/write rules, EDD etc. that binds the pure XML syntax to a layout view. There is some extra effort you need in order for FrameMaker to "understand" the document
Having said that, I don't think FrameMaker understands an XML schema either. Try the same using a DTD instead
