The value of totalDigits at the example [1]

<simpleType name='celsiusBodyTemp'>
  <restriction base='decimal'>
    <totalDigits value='4'/>
    <fractionDigits value='1'/>
    <minInclusive value='36.4'/>
    <maxInclusive value='40.5'/>
  </restriction>
</simpleType>

should probably be 3 -- if at all present.  The presence of both
minInclusive and maxInclusive make totalDigits superfluous.
The fractionDigits set to 1 means that only one digit after
the decimal point is allowed. 

Considering the other three facets all valid values have
at max 3 digits.

P.S. The magnitude of a (live) person's body temperature on the Celsius scale
would probably go up to 42 Celsius...
