Hi - I'm playing about with the official DTD for schema's on the W3C's site  I' can't get the Microsoft XML parser in
Internet Explorer 5 to validate it.  It spits an error that attribute
"xlmns" must be type #FIXED.  Any comments?

<!ELEMENT schema ((import*, include*, export?,
                  (comment | datatype | archetype | elementType
                  | attrGroup | modelGroup | notation
                  | textEntity | externalEntity | unparsedEntity)* ))>
<!ATTLIST schema
                 name        CDATA       #IMPLIED
                 version     CDATA       #IMPLIED
                 xmlns       CDATA
                 model      (open|refinable|closed) "closed" >
