Hmm.  The version as posted should work, with the xsi:schemaLocation
on the first appearance of the relevant namespace.  I can't debug, as
I don't have your PortalXML.xsd schema doc't or its URL -- please let
me know and I'll look at this.

(XSV no longer scans the whole document for xsi:schemaLocation unless
you set a command line switch requesting this, and that switch isn't
exposed in the online version, so putting xsi:schemaLocation on
FromList won't work online)
