Hello,

I apologies if this is a recurrent question, I've been unable to find
information about how to point to redefined elements. The following example
demonstrates what I would like to do.

This is the content of the original-schema.xsd file.
<xs:schema 
	xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" 
	elementFormDefault="qualified" 
	attributeFormDefault="unqualified" 
	targetNamespace="http://www.xbrl.org/confirmance-suite/dimensions" 
	xmlns:local="http://www.xbrl.org/confirmance-suite/dimensions">

	<xs:complexType name="theType">
		<xs:sequence>
			<xs:element name="foo1" type="xs:string"/>
			<xs:element name="foo2" type="xs:string"/>
		</xs:sequence>
	</xs:complexType>
	
	<xs:element name="typed" type="local:theType" id="id_type">
		<xs:annotation>
			<xs:documentation>This element will be redefined in
redefine-schema.xsd</xs:documentation>
		</xs:annotation>
	</xs:element>
	
</xs:schema>

And this is the content of the redefine-schema.xsd file.
<xs:schema 
	xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" 
	elementFormDefault="qualified" 
	attributeFormDefault="unqualified" 
	targetNamespace="http://www.xbrl.org/confirmance-suite/dimensions" 
	xmlns:local="http://www.xbrl.org/confirmance-suite/dimensions">
	<xs:redefine schemaLocation="original-schema.xsd">
	
		<xs:complexType name="theType">
			<xs:complexContent>
				<xs:extension base="local:theType">
					<xs:sequence>
						<xs:element
name="newContent" type="xs:string"/>
					</xs:sequence>
				</xs:extension>
			</xs:complexContent>
		</xs:complexType>
	
	</xs:redefine>
		
</xs:schema>

Then, I would like to know if the XPointer "redefine-schema.xsd#id_type" is
reaching the element defined if original-schema but with the new type.

Thanks in advance for your time reading this email.

Regards,
IHR
