Schema Namespaces

The STAR XML Schemas use several namespaces internally. Depending on software that is being used to create the XML instances that are transmitted some of these namespaces may show up in the BOD itself. All references to these namespaces can be safely removed. For more information on the namespaces that are used by the schemas, please see the STAR XML Naming and Design Rules document.

These namespaces are used primarily in the construction of the data types and code lists that the elements and attributes use. They are used internally by the schema and are here for documentation purposes only. These should not show up in the XML Instance.
