Clause 5.6 "schemaLocation" of the Schema Primer (Part 0) states

	The schemaLocation attribute contains pairs of values: The first member of each pair is the namespace for which the 	second member is the hint describing where to find to an appropriate schema document. 

First "where to find to an" is bad English. Next consider the "schemaLocation" attribute specification

	xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.example.com/Report  http://www.example.com/Report.xsd" 

in the "Using schemaLocation in the Quarterly Report, 4Q99html.xml" example. There can be only one value for any "xsi:schemaLocation" attribute value specification consisting of what is contained between the quotes, e.g.,

	http://www.example.com/Report  http://www.example.com/Report.xsd

I suggest the following rewording 

	The schemaLocation attribute value consists of one or more pairs of  a namespace and a URL. The URL is a hint for 	the namespace indicating where to find an appropriate schema document. 
for greater accuracy
