The VPS runs Linux, not Windows, but even if it did I don't think we'd have authors logging in remotely to run it.

There are a number of free tools that show up in a quick search of "XML schema visualization tools", including Eclipse and Oracle's JDeveloper:

    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/jdev/overview/index.html

Finally, there is another commercial application (this one is cross-platform) called OxygenXML:

I also found an interesting paper comparing popular tools (at the time):
