I downloaded the EAC schema to play with it and when I create an EAC document in XMetaL all the element names are prefixed with the full namespace, for example "" instead of just "activity."    Plus I'm getting the full info for all the namespaces shoved in as well.  

So just this one ACTIVITY element in plain text view looks like this:

< xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation=" file:///G:/LIB/Special%20Collections/Digital%20Projects/EAD/ead_dtd/cpf.xsd""" xmlns:xlink="">

This is most annoying.  Anyone know how to get rid of it?  Do I just remove it from the schema?  (I haven't worked with schemas before so am not sure what's OK and what's not as far as changing stuff.)
