Open XSD File

A file with the XSD extension is a file designed under an XML schema.

It is a text-based file format that defines the validation rules for an XML file.

An XSD file is used to define what elements and attributes can appear in an XML document. It also defines the relationship of the items and what data can be stored in them.

An XSD file can require the XML file to have certain limits, relationships, order, attributes, nested characteristics, and other elements, as well as set restrictions.

XML files can reference an XSD file with the schemaLocation attribute.

XSD files store their content as text in XML format, which means that the files can be opened and viewed by any text editor and numerous other programs. However, if you want to edit an XSD file, you must use an XML editor, such as Microsoft XML Notepad.
