Hi Joseph,

I do not think the schema specification covers entry help support.
I can tell you how we implemented the entry help support in oXygen. If 
you specify several schemas in the schemaLocation attribute then oXygen 
will determine all the elements defined in all the schemas. Then if you 
have a wildcard model it will offer you elements from all the known 
elements that match that wildcard.

For validation you can specify the schemas using the schemaLocation 
attribute. However you need to have wildcard models to pass from one 
schema to another. If you want to use schemas for validation and those 
schemas do not have wildcard models and you do not want to change them 
then you might consider NRL[1] (or in the future NVDL[2]).

Hope that helps,
