I have, but I have to change any references back the the W3C site (in the system identifiers for the DTD and in the import directives) to local copies of the same file since I live behind a proxy
server.

The version of XSV in the self installing executable is a little bit behind the web site.  To get the really up to date version, you have to use CVS to get the source from the W3C's server, download
python 1.6 and PyLTXML.  However, you shouldn't need to do that unless you run into the resource exhaustion bug.

At least some versions of XSD require that your schema have a document type declaration.

In addition, the Oracle Schema processor is also pretty good and supports some features that XSV doesn't (maxInclusive, etc) though it also has some problems (see the XML discussion group on Technet
for the bugs that I have reported).

Having both of these available is almost like having Henry at your beck and call, since you can answer most any question by consulting these two implementations.  If you get the same answer from both,
you should have a pretty high confidence, Henry would answer the same way.

I don't think that the xsi:type in your example is needed, however you should check it one you get XSD running.
