Thanks to all for the help. I will put together a wiki page that chronicles and explains the entire issue and process of getting here. Along with the simplest example I can come up with. I'm still a little confused about why using Field as a base class is wrong. I know that it wasn't it's original purpose but here is the situation. I originally inherited from 'object' in my base classes and from Interface in their associated interfaces. But, because many of the base classes (and their schemas) are required to define attributes of other classes. I found that I did not have the meta-data attributes such as required, default, etc for those schemas to represent the attributes in the latter schemas. So I chose to inherit from IField and Field in my bases so that I inherited. Now maybe there is a MUCH more appropriate way to build these OSHIP base classes than inheriting from Field. But in mid-2007 I searched hi and lo and asked on the mailing lists and still do not have a better solution. So if someone can tell me where I can find the documentation/examples for building your own schemas that will be validated then I'll re-factor the entire application to make it right. Cheers, Tim
