referencing a schema fails

I'm embarrassed to be asking anything so basic.  New to schemas, I am
failing at the very first step:  validators don't seem to be aware that I
even HAVE a schema.  I must be declaring it incorrectly or in the wrong

I have two files, in the same directory on my hard drive.  My test file
begins this way:  

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<reviews xmlns=""
xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation=" artml.xsd">
  <review author="John Haber" completed="2003-07-30">

and my artml.xsd file begins this way:  

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<xsd:schema xmlns:xsd=""
targetNamespace="" xmlns=""
<xsd:element name="reviews">
    <xsd:sequence maxOccurs="unbounded">
	  <xsd:element ref="review" />
<xsd:element name="review">

I'll spare you what comes next in each file, but I figured I better show
what I think defines a root element.  I'd be grateful for the help getting
me started, so I can really mess up in more serious ways.  

Thank you,
John Haber
