Hi Dave,

You've also got another issue with your schema.  You can't use a namespace
prefix in the "name" attribute of an element declaration.  The element
declaration will automatically use the target namespace of the schema
document.  So, for example,

<element name="rdf:RDF".....

is not valid.  In your case, since you are declaring elements in two
namespaces, you need to have two schema documents, one for the rdf namespace
and one for the dc namespace, with one importing the other.

Another nit is that I don't see the "dc" prefix declared anywhere in the
schema document.

Hope that helps,
