Actually, you have one schema made up from two schema documents.

Are you saying (a) you don't want the elements to be in a namespace, or are
you saying (b) you want them to be in a namespace, but you want that to be
the default namespace (so it needs no prefix)?

If you want (a) then you'll have to change your schema. Without seeing the
schema, it's hard to say how.

If you want (b), then this depends on the tool that you are using to
generate instances from your schema. You haven't told us what tool you are
