<attachedSchema> (Attached Custom XML Schema)

This element specifies that the custom XML schema whose target namespace matches the value specified in the @val attribute should be associated with this document when it is loaded, if such a schema is available to the hosting application. Applications may also load and utilize any additional schemas as well as those explicitly mentioned here.
Note: : These custom XML schemas may then be used to validate the structure of the custom XML markup in the document, etc.

If no elements of this type are present, then no custom XML schemas have been explicitly associated with the contents of this document.

<w:attachedSchema w:val="http://www.example.com/schema1" />
<w:attachedSchema w:val="http://www.example.com/schema2" />

The <attachedSchema> elements specify that two custom XML schemas with namespaces of http://www.example.com/schema1 and http://www.example.com/schema2 should be associated with the custom XML markup in the current document. ]

Parent Elements




<val> (String Value)

Specifies that its contents will contain a string.

The contents of this string are interpreted based on the context of the parent XML element.

  <w:pStyle w:val="heading1" /> 

The value of the @val attribute is the ID of the associated paragraph style's styleId.

However, consider the following fragment:

  <w:alias w:val="SDT Title Example" />

In this case, the decimal number in the @val attribute is the caption of the parent structured document tag. In each case, the value is interpreted in the context of the parent element. ]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_String simple type (§2.18.89).

The following XML Schema fragment defines the contents of this element:

<complexType name="CT_String">
	<attribute name="val" type="ST_String" use="required"/>
