Finally!  I got it working!  Thanks to Henry.
What I was missing before is that python only uses PYTHONSTARTUP 
in interactive mode.  I was using PYTHONSTARTUP to set the sys.path.
So it worked in interactive mode.  But when I named the applyschema.py
on the python command the path was not getting set.  Now depending
only on PYTHONPATH and a fair amount of twiddling with '/' vs '\'
vs '\\' (yuck!) I have gotten it to work! 

So now I have a shell script called xsv that reads:
- - - - 
export PYTHONPATH="C:\Program Files\HCRC LTG\LT XML\Python\lib;C:\sasmkb\xml\xmlschema" 
python "C:\sasmkb\xml\xmlschema\applyschema.py" $1 $2
- - - -
If the xml file names the schema with a xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation=
in the root element then I only need to specify the xml file on the xsv command
like this:

xsv  tiny2000.xml 

otherwise I have to name both:

xsv tiny2000.xml tiny2000.xsd


Now, I have a simple way to test xml and xsd files. 
So it is back about to schema design! Hooray.
