The first thing you need is software for validating documents against schemas.

The second thing you need to do is read the documentation for that software 
to see how it wants you to specify what document and what schema to use.

There is a schemaLocation defined in the XSDL Recommendation (see <URL: 
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-0/#schemaLocation >), but the software needs 
to know what to do with it.  Few XML parsers actually support XSDL; schema 
validation is usually a layer on top of the parser.
