Re: [vox-tech] best way to validate an XML file?

xmllint recognized if an end tag was missing, but it did not recognize
when I put in an extra attribute such as below. Eclipse recognized it
right away after validating against the schema. The "foo" tag is invalid.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0";
    xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/maven-v4_0_0.xsd";>

make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies. And the other
way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies."
