The apache xerces parser supports schemas (although not all features yet) in
its latest stable release (1.3).

However I haven't actually got it to work yet- it will happily parse
documents which are invalid according to their schema (according to XMLSpy)
without throwing any parse exceptions.  Anyone know more about this?
