I was asked privately to elaborate:

Basically every XML Schema type has a corresponding OWL type.

The XML Schema type is a class to which pieces of XML that are "valid" with
respect to the type belong. The XML transformed into OWL (the simplified
Infoset representation) represents instances of the corresponding OWL class.

Note also that a DTD, XQuery and RELAXNG types can just as (or perhaps more)
easily be transformed into this representation, so it is not XML Schema
specific.
