Hello Everyone..

    I am using JDOM-B5 and Xerces v1.2.3 and found that validation of my XML 
doc using XML/Schema was giving an exception %ELEMENT% must be declared..

    I did a little bit of search for similar messages in the archive and 
couldn't find a resonable answer. So I started debugging the source code.

    I found that the methods error & warning in XercesErrHandler class are 
re-throwing the SAXException. The documentation says, the call backs to 
these methods could be ignored in most of the cases! I also found that 
org.xml.sax.helpers.DefaultErrHandler ignored the exceptions in the methods 
error & warning. Was there any specific design decision involved in 
re-throwing the Exceptions??

    Am I missing something else here???
