Try other ways of working. Perhaps xinclude.

And no. My (biassed) view. Forget XSD, switch between simple dtd's and
relax-ng using trang, for newer stuff, using namespaces, rely on relax.
 It works, its very solid, and there are validators around.

Its worth buying Eric's book to get your head round relax though,
unless you're very clever.
