1.2. Elements which are in non-validating mode

Normally, XMLmind XML Editor works in validating mode. In such mode, the author can only do the editing operations which are allowed by the DTD or schema. For example, the author cannot remove required attributes (unless he/she uses Force Removal).

When an element is found to be invalid, XMLmind XML Editor automatically switches to a lenient editing mode for this element and all its descendants.

After the invalid element is fixed by the author, XMLmind XML Editor automatically switches back to its normal, validating, mode.

Note that, in the case of certain RELAX NG schemas, XMLmind XML Editor may automatically switch to a lenient editing mode, even if the underlined element is perfectly valid. This behavior is explained in great details in XMLmind XML Editor - Support of RELAX NG Schemas.
