We need an FAQ.  This question has been answered many times.

Your Sitemap element has xmlns="",
which makes that be the default namespace, so your unprefixed Page
element is in that namespace.

elementFormDefault="qualified" makes local element declarations apply
to elements in the target namespace (rather than in no namespace), which
is what you want.

Your schema would be right if your document looked like this:

<x:Sitemap xmlns:x=""
           xsi:schemaLocation=" Sitemap.xsd">

(i.e. if Page was in no namespace).
