use lib.xsd and catalog.xsd to validate catalog.xml, didn't work

use lib.xsd and catalog.xsd to validate catalog.xml, didn't work

Hi everyone,

I need to validate a file named catalog.xml, I constructed two XML Schema documents: one for a library of user-defined data types, and one for the catalog itself.

I got some error messages when i did the online validation using the tool http://www.xmlvalidation.com/index.php?id=1&L=0.

I suppose I messed up with namespaces among the three files but couldn't figure out how to fix the problem. I quote parts of the files and error messages here. Any input is welcome. Thanks in advance.

part of the catalog.xml:
<catalog:catalog xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
                 xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.superstarmovies.com/catalog catalog.xsd">
    <movie id="m2001-012" genre="drama">
        <title>Monster&apos;s Ball</title>

part of the catalog.xsd:
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"

<xs:import namespace="http://www.superstarmovies/library" schemaLocation="lib.xsd" />

   <xs:element name="catalog">

part of lib.xsd:
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"

<xs:simpleType name="actorID">

error messages:
Errors in the XML document:
     16:    89    cvc-elt.1: Cannot find the declaration of element 'catalog:catalog'.
Errors in file xml-schema:
     18:    68    TargetNamespace.2: Expecting no namespace, but the schema document has a target namespace of 'http//www.superstarmovies.com/catalog'.

Errors in file catalog.xsd:
     16:    68    TargetNamespace.1: Expecting namespace 'http//www.superstarmovies.com/catalog', but the target namespace of the schema document is 'http//www.superstarmovies.com/library'.
