XHTML Schema in place of XHTML Doctype?

My understanding is I have an option (as far as the W3C is concerned) between using a DTD Doctype and an XHTML Schema to declare the language I am using (in my case XHTML 1.1). Regardless of browser issues what lines of code would I use to declare my document conforms to XHTML 1.1 using the XML schema method?

Read through the first section of [w3.org...] . Since the DTD DOCTYPE is required to trigger standards mode in IE, the dual method (1.5) may be preferred.

You would have to serve the document as
application/xhtml+xml or application/xml anyway, which makes IE compatibility not really an issue - and as such you wouldn't need the doctype at all when serving as XML...

The advantage that XML schemas have over DTD in the XML world is that they give finer control of validation of your fields.

For XHTML, the browsers won't be particularly concerned either way.

I'm just not finding the XHTML 1.1 schema declaration code anywhere online, could someone please post it for me?
