Need help with validate XML

I created this XSD and then a doc type based on this XSD.

<?[/color][/size][/font][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Courier New][SIZE=2][COLOR=#ff00ff][FONT=Courier New][SIZE=2][COLOR=#ff00ff][FONT=Courier New][SIZE=2][COLOR=#ff00ff]xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" [/color][/size][/font][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Courier New][SIZE=2][COLOR=#0000ff][FONT=Courier New][SIZE=2][COLOR=#0000ff][FONT=Courier New][SIZE=2][COLOR=#0000ff]?>

In my flow service I convert the input doctype (created above) to XML string and then string to node and try to validate against the schema.

I always get a false return on the validate call with the error messages reading “Duplicate root element xxx found” (I’m running the flow service in debug mode)

I’m not sure where I messed up. Need help!!! Thanks

i am not sure how your code is doing the mappings before the validate step but it is working for me with no issues (some whitespace issues while copying the schema). Attached is a sample.
