Bug in RDF schema - uses incorrect namespace

The RDF schema spec, http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-rdf-schema
specifies that the schema namespace is http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema

However, the RDF 1.0 schema http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns
actually uses the Schema *spec* http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-rdf-schema
as a namespace.  This is clearly a bug, and causes schema validations
to fail, apart from being wrong in general.

I assume that we can fix http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns as a bug
fix, a webmaster editorial fix.

I have therefore fixed it on the web site.
