Greetings Michael, I'm afraid not, you will need to use <itemset> to do 
what you want. There is an example [1] in the spec which shows how to do 
what you want.

RE: select or select1 values - element content rather than just text 
(10023-19605)






Hi, 
I'm very new to Xforms and am trying to use it to create xml data files. 
I have no problems when the values I want to submit are plain text. 
For example: 
<xf:select1> 
        <xf:label>Is today Friday?<br/> 
        </xf:label> 
        <hr/> 
        <xf:item> 
                <xf:label>yes</xf:label> 
                <xf:value>yes</xf:value> 
        </xf:item> 
        <xf:item> 
                <xf:label>no</xf:label> 
                <xf:value>no</xf:value> 
        </xf:item> 
</xf:select1> 
The issue I would like some advice on is whether it is possible to have an 
element as a value rather than text. 
For example: 
<xf:select1> 
        <xf:label>Is today Friday?<br/> 
        </xf:label> 
        <hr/> 
        <xf:item> 
                <xf:label>yes</xf:label> 
                <xf:value><yes/></xf:value> 
        </xf:item> 
        <xf:item> 
                <xf:label>no</xf:label> 
                <xf:value><no/></xf:value> 
        </xf:item> 
</xf:select1>
