Eclipse - cvc-elt.1: Cannot find the declaration of element error

When working with XML files in Eclipse, a common error developers encounter is; cvc-elt.1: Cannot find the declaration of element "some-element-name".

The error message gives a clue on which file the error exists by pointing to the element name, but does not give any information on why this error is shown or how it could be fixed.

Patent damages tripled in 2006

Trend of Patent lawsuits are increasing drametically. According to sources, the total amount awarded in 2006 is $1 billion. Compared to $379 million which was awarded in 2005, this is almost a threefold increase.

The top winner of the year was Rambus who won the case over Hynix Semiconductor with $307 million. Rambus has a ton of patents on their list.

Even though there are pros/cons on having the patent concept, it seems companies are willing to go to courts to protect their technologies while few companies do it for the sake of grabbing some money from a company who misuses a technology or concept.

This message received so many replies saying others also faced the issue. But one important point came up there was that they were using Firefox 2.0.

Another user pointed out that the following message was left after deleting all the mails.
"This is not a mistake. All your emails and contacts have been deleted on purpose. This was a malicious attack and not an error. Have a nice day. =)"
People who got attacked had kept the Gmail opened under Firefo…
