> of dateTime is the space of Combinations of date and time of day values as

> <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/#ISO8601#ISO8601>.

> 3.2.7.1 Lexical representation
> 
> A single lexical representation, which is a subset of the lexical
> representations allowed by [ISO 8601]
> <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/#ISO8601#ISO8601>, is allowed for
> dateTime. This lexical representation is the [ISO 8601]
> <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/#ISO8601#ISO8601> extended format
> CCYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss where "CC" represents the century, "YY" the year, "MM"
> the month and "DD" the day, preceded by an optional leading "-" sign to
> indicate a negative number. If the sign is omitted, "+" is assumed. The
> letter "T" is the date/time separator and "hh", "mm", "ss" represent hour,
> minute and second respectively. Additional digits can be used to increase
> the precision of fractional seconds if desired i.e the format ss.ss...
> with any number of digits after the decimal point is supported. The
> fractional seconds part is optional; other parts of the lexical form are
> not optional. To accommodate year values greater than 9999 additional
> digits can be added to the left of this representation. Leading zeros are
> required if the year value would otherwise have fewer than four digits;
> otherwise they are forbidden. The year 0000 is prohibited. 
> "with ... is".
