I'm brand new to Schema validation so bear with me. I just learned that you can validate an XML document using the javax.xml.validation package in Java5. So now I'm trying it in a unit test. I'm trying to validate some generated XSL-FO with a schema I found here. I'm getting an error on the following line:

...where xslfoSchema is an input stream containing the contents of the schema that I downloaded. The error says:
Non-whitespace characters are not allowed in schema elements other than 'xs:appinfo' and 'xs ocumentation'. Saw '-- This schema was automatically generated by Syntext Dtd2Schema --'.
and the element in question is this one found in the document:

I'm thinking that this shouldn't happen but I don't know enough about XSDs to figure it out. Could someone help me?
