> I have defined the following schema, test.xsd:
> <xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
>   <xsd:element name="test" type="xsd:string"/>
> </xsd:schema>
> I have also defined the following xml file, test.xml:
> <?xml version="1.0"?>
> <test
>   xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
>   xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema test.xsd"/>

This last attribute isn't right. The value for schemaLocation should be

1. The namespace being constrained
2. The file for that namespace

So you want something like:

  xsi:schemaLocation=http://default.namespace.com test.xsd />

That will locate the schema for the default namespace (which the element
"test" is in), and should work.
