 This is not a problem in libxml2 as far as I can tell, it's a problem

 The Schemas specification is really clear about this, the value of
the schemasLocation is an URI-Reference, as defined by RFC 2396. This is
*not* a filename. So you will have to convert this to an URI, this means
you will have to prefix it with file:/// (3 slashes, please read the spec
explaining what this means) and possibly %escape other problematic 
like the $ sign.


I read the RFC 2396 spec but didn't see any reference to
three slashes.  Could you please put a little more meat
in these bones and tell me what to look for.

c.f.: 3.2.2. Server-based Naming Authority

  format for those kind of URLs are

it also state that RFC 1738 defines some existing schemes

  File is 3.10 FILES
  "As a special case, <host> can be the string "localhost" or the empty
   string; this is interpreted as `the machine from which the URL is
   being interpreted'."

  hence file:///foo/bar

is /foo/bar on localhost machine
while file://foo/bar
is /bar on the foo machine.
