First, i had an error in a commentary (!).


$ sh pxml-validator --pxml ../pnd/PXML.xml


[WARNING] No report level specified; defaulting to "strict"


[Fatal Error] :39:83: The string "--" is not permitted within comments.


[ERROR] The file contains invalid XML.


[ERROR] Error:


[ERROR] The string "--" is not permitted within comments.



Code:
<!--

<associations>

	<association name="Deinterlaced Bitmap Image" filetype="image/bmp" exec="-f %s --no-deinterlacing"/>

	<association name="Style sheet system crasher" filetype="text/css" exec="-f %s --crash-on-success"/>

</associations>

-->



Changed -- into - , but it's annoying that commentaries are checked. Maybe it's part of the strict checking.







And now :



$ sh pxml-validator --pxml ../pnd/PXML.xml

[WARNING] No report level specified; defaulting to "strict"

[ERROR] The PXML file has both errors and issues.

Okay, I'm assuming pxml-validator uses PXML_schema.xsd to validate the PXML.xml.


If that is so, then the order of the elements in your application tag is wrong. Because the xsd doesn't specifically allow random order, it implicitly demands the following order (lines starting with an asterisk are optional tags):


- exec


- title


- author


- version


* osversion


* description


* icon


* previewpics


* info


- categories


* associations


* clockspeed

Well, i looked at it at the very beginning of my .pnd trip, and as i do many other things, i'm a bit confused with all this new stuff.


Thx for the links, it's useful.
