[protege-owl] Configuring Protege OWL

Dear ALL,
I am creating and ontology using protege-OWL version 3.4.1.  Each time I type a class name and hit enter, in the class hierarchy it appears OK as required but in the pane written it appears with some addtional URL infront. For instance:
School in the class hierarchy appears as
Department appears as and Real_Estate_Construction appears as
How do I configure Protege so that School appears as School, Department appears as Department and Real_Estate_Construction  appears as Real_Estate_Construction .
See Screenshot

Just for clarification, an OWL file is an XML file.  But you are right that using xml tools with owl files is not recommended.  The OWL/XML format would probably work much better with xml tools than the RDF/XML format because it is more regular but I haven't studied these issues yet.
