PSGML does not do validation against XML schemas, and to tell the truth,
I wouldn't encourage anyone to do it.  Emacs is a wonderful tool -- I
use it to do all of my e-mail, news, programming, and technical
writing -- but it's a single-threaded monolithic mess, and it might be
nice to get a more modern open-source XML editing tool under

PSGML allows you to edit XML documents that happen to contain
Namespaces, but it doesn't know anything about the Namespaces view.

All the best,
