Thank you for this

I was getting so pissed off at eclipse freezing on every load because it tried to validate our GIANT xml datafeed files

That option is no longer there in the latest eclipse =(

I've tried a bunch of things in 3.5.2 but still can not figure out how to turn off XML validation.

Anyone have success with this in a newer version of eclipse?

I got it do disable by doing this.

Project -> Properties -> Validation -> HTML Syntax -> Document Type -> Invalid Location = Ignore
