Hi ...!!!


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<vxml xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/vxml" version="2.1">

Just try to parse the above vxml_test.vxml (3 line), with vxml.dtd from http://www.w3.org/TR/voicexml21/vxml.dtd  as xmerl_scan:file("vxml_test.vxml",[{validation,true},{doctype_DTD, "vxml.dtd"}]).

1.) {error,{whitespace_was_expected}} - what means this ??? I can't see anythig wrong in line 109 as shown by the xmerl_scan. Also can be there any errors after W3C pepole publised it ?

2.) But with commenting "<!ATTLIST choice" (Line 119-126)  error was moved to the {line,165}. That means something wrong/unsupported within the above lines. Can anyone explane this ???

3.) Also I think the Line numbers shown incorrectly???

Below the complete error I have got

67> xmerl_scan:file("vxml_test.vxml",[{validation,true},{doctype_DTD, "vxml.dtd"}]).  
3690- fatal: {error,{whitespace_was_expected}}
** exited: {fatal,{{error,{whitespace_was_expected}},
                   {col,30}}} **

Thanks in advance
