There is a public valid webpage from which I want to extract information using an XQuery.

I have saved the code of this webpage in a txt file and alternatively as an html document.

I have analysed the code and I have written accordingly my query to extract just the information I am looking for.


But before being able to make an Xquery, Kernow parses the  original code and comes with a series of error messages eventhough the code is valid as the webpage produces a nice page using my browser.

The errors I see show code written in HTML ... so It seems, the webpage I am looking at extracting information has been written in html *and* in Xhtml, but I am not sure this is the real problem.


Here what I have tried:

I took the complete original code of the webpage as it is and I parse it with Kernow.

I replace the first 2 lines of code defining the environment and the head with simply “ <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> ” and I get the same error messages (plus a few non declared parameters).


The first lines of code of the webpage are:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="fr" lang="fr">


<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

<title> - Recherche - page 8 - </title>

<meta name="description" content="" />

<meta name="keywords" content="" />

... </head>




My question:

What can I do to make Kernow parse the code of the extracted webpage without error?

Does it mean the schema I take from the page (see below the schema used in the page) is not the correct one for Kernow?




Below a  list of error messages I get with the related code that generates these errors (errors I get with either both headers, the original or the simplified one)
