The CDA Schema is not itself a normative artifact. Rather, checking an instance against the CDA Schema is a surrogate for validating conformance against the normative XML ITS. An instance which validates against the CDA Schema might still not be a conformant CDA according to this Standard.

The CDA Narrative Block, which is the XML content model of section.text, is manually crafted, as described above (see Section Narrative Block). Note that while the CDA Schema is not a normative artifact, the CDA Narrative Block schema is.
