Validating XBRL Instances and Taxonomies

To validate an XBRL instance or XBRL taxonomy, make the XBRL document the active document, and select one of the validation methods listed below:


XML | Validate XML (F8). Validation is done with the built-in engine of XMLSpy.
XML | Validate XML on Server (Ctrl+F8). Validation is carried out by a remote RaptorXML+XBRL Server (which you can set up via the command Tools | Manage Raptor Servers)


The XBRL Validation tab of the Options dialog (Tools | Options) provides relevant validation options.
