Hi again,

I downloaded the ISO 19139 XSDs from


and I had to enable the option 
"http://apache.org/xml/features/honour-all-schemaLocations" in Options 
-> Preferences -> XML / XML Parser to validate all the XSDs without 
errors and without setting an XML catalog. That option tells the parser 
to use all the references to XSDs that define types and elements for the 
same namespace:


Best regards,
