that failing silently when there is no schema is a bug. I have spent
a lot of time figuring out that the problem in my HTML is actually in
the validator. I then found a place to report the error to XHTML-mode
owners. They told me it was a problem in nxml-mode. I reported the
problem on the nxml-mode wiki. No answer there. I waited a couple
weeks to be sure that was not a usable way to reach the maintainers of
nxml-mode. Then I looked for another potential home for maintainers,
found this group and reported the error. All that work was caused by
the error happening silently rather than being explicit.
If nxml-mode doesn't have a schema to validate a file, it should
disable validation and report the lack of a schema to the user.
