Subject: xerces and jdom-beta5 question

Hi all,
I am trying to generate a document with root element as follows:
<document xmlns:xsi='http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema-instance'
I declare my root element in the above way so that I can use Xerces for
later parsing and validating with schema --- unless the Xerces gurus know a
different way of specifying the schema location.

I use the following piece of code for generating the above (using jdom-beta5
new Element("document")
            .addAttribute(new Attribute("xsi",

            .addAttribute(new Attribute("noNamespaceSchemaLocation",
            "slp.xsd", Namespace.getNamespace("xsi", "slp.xsd")));

and what I get out of this code snippet is:

<document xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema-instance"

So you can see that's not what I need  ---- is there anyone with ideas on
how to accomplish the  generation of the root element as specified at the
begining of the email using jdom.
