What is the purpose of having publicId? I find it useful only when I create a xml catalog to redirect systemId to local copies. Why do we need both publicId and systemId? For the purpose of xml catalog, we could have used systemId as key as well.

I don't see publicId or systemId in a xml document that supports schema. schemaLocation seems to have replaced systemId. Is publicId sort of deprecated in schema?

Thanks for help.

I personally usually don't care some WHY questions. See
Roseanne's answer for why question.

However, your question caught my attention. I did a little search, and found something interesting. There is a little background discussion on this issue before xmlschema 2001 release:
for you and/or someone else might be also interested.
