Thanks Ken. That's really good to know. Okay, I added that to the top of my
XSLT program. I still get the same error. Below is my current XSLT program.
Any suggestions?  /Roger

Are you getting that error message at the execution of the test
(where you brought our focus in your post to the list), or is it
associated with the loading of the source document?  If the latter,
you have to turn off schema validation on the loading of the
document, otherwise, of course it won't be valid.  You haven't
protected the validation from happening selectively.

You can use input-type-annotations="strip" so that your input tree
has no type information (and thus won't be constrained by the schema).

I hope this is what you need.
