RE: what is the relationship between a XML-Schema file and itsnamespace

XML Schema does not advocate dereferencing a namespace URI to retrieve the
schema. You may want to, but you probably shouldn't. There are different
methods for locating a schema for an instance. The most straight forward is
adding an xsi:schemaLocation attribute in you instance. This attribute takes
pairs of namespace URI and schema URL. Section 4 of Schema Part 1 actually
does a pretty good job explaining all of this.
