A global declaration is a schema declaration,
usually for an element or an attribute, that is available for
use in content models throughout the schema, i.e. a declaration that is
not bound to a particular context.
- namespace well-formed
A node is a namespace well-formed XML node if it
is a well-formed node,
and follow the productions and namespace constraints. If
[XML 1.0] is used, the constraints are defined in
[XML Namespaces]. If [XML 1.1] is used,
the constraints are defined in [XML Namespaces 1.1].
A schema defines a set of structural and value
constraints applicable to XML documents. Schemas can be
expressed in schema languages, such as DTD, XML Schema, etc.
A node is a well-formed XML node if its
serialized form, without doing any transformation during its
serialization, matches its respective production in [XML 1.0] or [XML 1.1] (depending on the XML
version in use) with all well-formedness constraints related
to that production, and if the entities which are referenced
within the node are also well-formed. If namespaces for XML
are in use, the node must also be namespace
