  That could be, I haven't learnt about schemas yet, so I cant check 
myself.  I'll use examples to demonstrate what I asked, so you or 
someone else can check for me.
Please ignore the fact that there isn't actually and <script> elements 
used with the <noscript> elements here.

Example 1:
<!ELEMENT p (PCDATA | Inline | List | blockcode | blockquote | pre | 
table)*>
<!-- Legal -->
<p>This is a paragraph with <noscript><pre>block 
content</pre></noscript></p>

<!-- Illegal -->
<p>This is a paragraph with <noscript><p>nested paragraph</p></noscript></p>

Example 2:
<!ELEMENT span (PCDATA | Inline)*>

<!-- Legal -->
<span>this is a span with <noscript><strong>inline 
content</strong></noscript></span>

<!-- Illegal -->
<span>this is a span with <noscript><pre>block 
content</pre></noscript></span>

The noscript element should inherit the content model of its parent.
For example 1, the content model will become equivalent to:
<!ELEMENT noscript (PCDATA | Inline | List | blockcode | blockquote | 
pre | table)*>

And, for example 2, the content model will become equivalent to:
<!ELEMENT noscript (PCDATA | Inline)*>

  So, basically, I'm asking, is it possible to have a dynamic content 
model for an element?
