Hi

The docs for the top level FDSNStationXML element say:

Top-level type for Station XML. Required field are Source (network ID
of the institution sending the message) and one or more
Network containers or one or
more Station containers.

but if I am reading the schema right, the FDSNStaionXML element can only
contain <Network>s directly and not Station containers. Are the docs
incorrect, or is there a way that Stations will live in the FDSNStationXML
element without being in a Network?

thanks,
Philip

    Hi Philip,

    I think that's just language left over from schema that we started with, our interpretation of the schema is that all Station elements must be children of Network elements.
