The "simple syntax" in our currently published draft isn't compatible at all
with XML Schema. We're currently investigating ways to improve this. You can
find some background information on this topic in the list archive here,
and, of course, keep your eye out for new drafts. :-)

Subject: HELP - The XForms draft and the XForms schema problem

Hello !
Im a student of DI-FCT-UNL (Department of Informatics - Faculty of 
Sciences  and Technology, New University of Lisbon, 
http://www.di.fct.unl.pt) and im  working on a project with Prof. 
Joo Moura Pires, which involves forms.  Currently im studying the 
possibility to use XForms but i came across several  problems. I 
hope someone can help.

According to the draft i can do something like this (on 

<array name="arr1" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="unbounded">  
	<group name="g">  
		<string name="a"/>  
		<string name="b"/>  
		<string name="c"/>  
		<string name="d"/>  

but when trying to use the XML Schema (Appendix A) of the 
XForms draft to  
validate a document, i cannot. 

i found a couple of things more like not being able to do this 

<string name="some_string" enum="open"> 
	<value>blabla 1</value>  
	<value>blabla 2</value> 
	<value>some stuff</value> 
	<value>etc ..</value> 

is the Schema in the draft not according or am i misunderstanding 
something ? 

Thanks in advance for any help. 

Rui Pedro Leal.
