I had a look at the different schema documents involved and I found a couple of
things that could cause your errors. The first thing I noticed (in xhtml.xsd
and some others) was that you have elements inside your <documentation>
element. I don't think you're allowed to have xml content within a
<documentation> element but you can solve it by using the escaped '<'. E.g.

   <div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
   <h1>XHTML Simple 1.0 XML Schema</h1>

would become:

   &lt;div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
   &lt;h1>XHTML Simple 1.0 XML Schema&lt;/h1>

I also noticed that you're using the "http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
targetNamespace for all the schemas. Since you're using the
"http://www.w3.org/2000/10/XMLSchema" namespace as default namespace for all
schemas you need to qualify all your references to types and
elements/attributes you define with the "http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
namespace. E.g. (in Common.xsd)

<attributeGroup name="Core">
   <attributeGroup ref="id"/>
   <attributeGroup ref="class"/>
   <attributeGroup ref="title"/>

should be:

<attributeGroup name="Core">
   <attributeGroup ref="xhtml:id"/>
   <attributeGroup ref="xhtml:class"/>
   <attributeGroup ref="xhtml:title"/>

where you have declared xhtml as xmlns:xhtml="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"

In block.xsd you also have the following attributeGroup:

<attributeGroup name="pre.attlist">
   <attributeGroup ref="Common"/> (should be xhtml:Common)
   <attribute name="xml:space">
         <restriction base="xml:spaceX">
            <enumeration value="preserve"/>

I'm not sure what you're trying to do but it seems you're trying to restrict
the values of the xml:space attribute and I don't think you're allowed to do

<xsd:element name="Empty">

Empty with an attribute:

<xsd:element name="Empty">
       <xsd:attribute name="EmptyAttr" type="string"/>

Hope this helps
