RE: Atomization Question...

Element and attributes whose simple content
contains list types will contain sequences of atomic values.

For example, here's a list type:

<simpleType name="intList">
  <list itemType="xs:integer"/>
</simpleType>

Here's an element that contains an intList:

<element name="ints" type="intList"/>

Here is an element that validates against 'element ints':

  <ints>1 2 3 4</ints>

Suppose $x is bound to the element above and the element
has been validated against 'element ints',
then here's an expression that returns the typed
content of this element : 

  fn:data($x)

which evaluates to the sequence:

 1, 2, 3, 4

Hope that helps
