Hello, all.

I'm trying to assign some validation job to XForms.
For example: I want to bind <xform:input> with such WXS-type when it's 
value is decimal with maximum 5 digits OR user may leave this field 
empty (kind of optional search parameter).
My guess, is that i'll be like this:
             <xsd:simpleType name="myType">
                 <xsd:restriction base="xsd:decimal">
                     <xsd:minInclusive value="0"/>
                     <xsd:fractionDigits value="5"/>
but when such field is empty (right after Xform is loaded or user 
desided that way) it fires xforms-invalid event and so on..

I did some workaround by using <xsd:pattern>:

             <xsd:simpleType name="myType">
                 <xsd:restriction base="xsd:string">
                     <xsd:pattern value="[0-9]{1,5}|"/>

Works fine but, imho, not such pretty.

I'm not an WXS expert so is there better way?
