Hi all, please pardon me if i post to wrong section (it took me 3 days to even gain access this site).

In your xsd tutorial, the Example 2 description is plain wrong, and it is confusing people. The faulty page is here: https://www.w3schools.com/xml/el_all.asp The error must be there for a long time, it even has its own post on stackoverflow https://stackoverflow.com/questions/5677154/how-do-i-make-items-optional-in-xsall

Quote: "The example above indicates that the "firstname" and the "lastname" elements can appear in any order and each element CAN appear zero or one time!"

To allow each subelement to be missing, the minOccurs attribute must be put to the subelements, not the xs:all itself.

Please fix the embarassing error. :-)

Unfortunately this site has no connection with the administrators of w3shools.com, posting this error here, won't  receive any attention to fix this error, but I suggest you go to 'About' page on W3schools.com then at bottom of page, click report error link.

There is a link from main menu from w3shools.com to this forum. So the connection does exists.
