The XSD Element spec has an attribute entitled "nillable" that permits empty fields to appear in the file. The xsd element I'm coding to doesn't specify nillable=true, so as far as I'm concerned their test tool that complains about the element being missing has no credibility. But now that I've complained I'm sure they'll put it in and we'll be back to this same place.
I'll open a case, but I'm leaping to the conclusion this won't be a patch. Upgrade is likely not something that will happen on this site soon.
Thanks for the reply.
