Validate Entry Files

Use Oxygen to validate the entry files.

  1. In Oxygen XML Editor, navigate to the digital-edition/xml folder for the edition and section you are working on and open an existing xml-project file, if one exists, or create a new one by selecting Project > New Project.

  3. Right-click the selection. At the bottom of the pop-up menu, select Validate > Validate.
    You should receive a Validation successful message.
    If some files do not validate, a red box and a Validation failed message appear in the blue bar at the bottom of the window. An Errors window opens at the bottom listing specific problems. Correct any remaining problems manually.
