Whoa. That didn't happen in my sandbox on Mac OS X, so I thought it  
was specific to the classloader on Windows. I'll investigate.

As a quick fix, since you aren't using the the HTML 4 / XHTML 1  
functionality anyway, if you remove the lines for those schemas from  
validator/presets.txt and rerun the build/build.py all, the result  
should run and have HTML5 functionality.
