Err, that's not consistent from browser to browser.  Esp wrt a windows box but
others mangle it as well.  Also, the namespace URI isn't required to reference a
resolvable document, it's just an identifier.  You're suggesting that the URI
here is resolvable to the actual XML schema document.  This is a fine idea but
not one others have been willing to support (for various religious reasons).
The least of which being if it's a schema document, what format?
