XML Schema (XSD), .
The correct definition should read:

"An XML vocabulary that defines the content and format of other XML documents--their elements, attributes, and content type. By using an XML
document in combination with a schema, you can determine whether a document is <i>valid</i>. A document is valid only if it contains the elements, attributes and content specified in its associated schema. Schemas are intended to replace the older Document Type Definition (DTD) format, which also describe the content of XML documents, but are not written in XML."

Note that the <i>valid</i> should be italicized in the preceding definition.
