I think it is just "XML Schema". So your proposed usage might be "We
have written several XML Schema schemata for our order entry system. We

Ya gotta love XML-DEV! Anywhere else this would be a spelling flame-war,

My own pet naming peeve is the use of "extensible" in acronyms, where I
believe "XML" should be used. For example, "eXtensible Stylesheet
Language". XSL isn't really all that "extensible", the "X" really refers
to "XML". The other example is XHTML. In most of the other standards,
the "X" stands for "XML", although I can't find what the "X" in "XForms"
