FileName:
Schema declarations in your XML

This test parser requires that the schema location be present in your schema declaration, for example:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<doi_batch version="4.3.3" xmlns="http://0-www.crossref.org.lib.rivier.edu/schema/4.3.3" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://0-www.crossref.org.lib.rivier.edu/schema/4.3.3 http://0-data.crossref.org.lib.rivier.edu/schemas/crossref4.3.3.xsd">

To use other versions of the schema simply replace the 4.3.3 accordingly. Schema details are available in Crossref Help.
