Thanks for the plug.  It's worth noting that handing a schema document
to XSV will check whether or not it conforms to the schema for schema
documents, but that's _all_ it will check.  If it fails that test, you
know you need to fix something.  However, it may pass that test, and
still not correspond to a conformant schema, because that requires
more than just valid syntax.

A tool which in my opinion does a pretty thorough job of checking
schema documents is IBM's SQC (Schema Quality Checker).  There's a
pointer to that, and lots of other free and not-so-free tools, on the
W3C XML Schema home page [1].
