Part 1 says: "Embedding an XML schema uses the existing top-level xs:schema
element information item defined by XML Schema [XML Schema: Structures]. It
may be viewed as simply cutting and pasting an existing, stand-alone schema,
to a location inside the types element information item." -

Should say:

"Embedding an XML schema uses the existing top-level xs:schema element
information item defined by XML Schema [XML Schema: Structures]. It may be
viewed as simply cutting and pasting an existing, >schema document<, to a
location inside the types element information item."

or if you prefer:

"Embedding an XML schema uses the existing top-level xs:schema element
information item defined by XML Schema [XML Schema: Structures]. It may be
viewed as simply cutting and pasting >an existing XML representation of
schema information<, to a location inside the types element information
item."

Note that the terms schema [.1] and schema document [.2] are rigorously
defined in the schema recommendation, and the term "XML Representation" is
widely and uniformly used; we request that these terms be used correctly.
