[Mono-list] Problems using RelaxngValidatingReader (c#)

I am trying to use the RelaxngValidatingReader (located at mcs/class/Commons.Xml.Relaxng/ ) but I am getting errors that I cannot understand.

(if this is the wrong list, please let me know the correct one - I couldn't find a better match)

I have made a simple C# console application in Visual Studio - I am using sample data from the Relax NG book by Eric van der Vlist)

My code is this:

var rngPattern = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(

<element name='library' xmlns='http://relaxng.org/ns/structure/1.0'>
        <element name='book'></element>

var stream = new MemoryStream(rngPattern);

stream.Position = 0;
var xmlReader = XmlReader.Create(stream);
var pattern0 = RelaxngPattern.Read(xmlReader);

My Xml is this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<library xmlns="http://tempuri.org">
  <book id="b0836217462" available="true">
    <title xml:lang="en">Being a Dog Is a Full-Time Job</title>
    <author id="CMS"></author>
    <character id="PP"></character>
    <character id="Snoopy"></character>
    <character id="Schroeder"></character>
    <character id="Lucy"></character>

But whenever I get to the last line in my code, an exception is thrown :

Commons.Xml.Relaxng.RelaxngException: RELAX NG pattern did not appear.

Can you help me closer to the cause of this? Is it a namespace issue?
