The XML Schema for a particular bit of XML is indicated through the
'schemaLocation' attribute in the
""; namespace.  For example:

<doc xmlns:xsi="";

So you can include the xsi namespace declaration and the
xsi:schemaLocation attribute in the source XML and the XSLT
stylesheet, and you can add the xsi:schemaLocation attribute to any
result elements you create (make sure in this case you define the
xsi namespace in your stylesheet).  See for more

There aren't any XSLT processors yet that I know of that use XML
Schema to do anything interesting automatically.  But it's probably
possible to use the xsi:schemaLocation attribute within the XSLT
stylesheet to access the relevant schema and use it.

I hope that helps,
