So there are two problems here:

1) when the document you submit is not well-formed XML, the validator
messages about what's wrong don't show up -- I'll try to fix this.

Workaround:  use the 4th output option, view XML output as text/plain

2) one of your documents has a root element called schema in the
namespace http://www.w3.org/2000/10/XMLSchema-instance -- this
suggests you misunderstood my earlier message.
