You might like to take a look at
http://tools.decisionsoft.com/schemaValidate.html

We have put up an on-line schema validation service based on Xerces-J
1.4.3 and Xerces-J 2.  Both versions will pick up this error, although
Xerces-J 1.4.3 will give a more helpful error message.

They get that one too.  Schema validation in the various Xerces parsers
(Xerces-J 1&2, and Xerces-C) is pretty complete these days, although we
still use a combination of XSV, Xerces, and, for testing schemas
themselves, IBM's sqc.

We are currently working on adding Xerces-C support to the on-line
service, and improving the error reporting.

cheers,

Paul
