Novice Developer Errors: "Non-whitespace characters are not allowed"and IE BG image
I'm a ColdFusion developer and HTML handcoder trying to teach myself
XML. I've read all of _XML_ by Vander, Veer, and Mengle and chapters
1 - 12 of _XML for Dummies_ (4th edition.) (Cost played a necessarily
large part in choosing those books.) I'm sure I am making a obvious
and silly mistake but despite my best efforts I have not identified a
MY FIRST PROBLEM: I've created a valid XML file and DTD file but I'm
having trouble with my Schema file. The files are at
http://www.boutonjones.com/xml/booklist_s.xsd respectively. The XML
file displays fine in my various browsers but I get error messages
when I try to validate it through the Validome and Schneegans's
validators. (Please see
For the time being I am focusing on the Validome results. It
generates 47 variations of this message: "Non-whitespace characters
are not allowed in schema elements other than 'xs:appinfo' and
'xs:documentation', but ... was found."
Also the "<" symbol for the closing tag is marked in red and
underlined in the "Error Position."
I've poured over my two XML books numerous times, I've Googled the
offending phrase, and I've read through numerous posts on this and
similar newsgroups, but I haven't been able to isolate the solution.
MY SECOND PROBLEM: The file at http://www.boutonjones.com/xml/booklist.xml
looks fine in Firefox and Opera but the background does not completely
fill the window in IE. It's the background is framed by a white
margin. The CSS at http://www.boutonjones.com/xml/booklist.css reads
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
I've tried changing the margins, padding, width, and height properties
but nothing I've tried so far removes the white border.
Any help will be appreciated.
