hi,

i have a concrete question regarding XML Schema. the namespace attribute in
the ANY-element type; if i set it to namespace="##other", does it mean that
just the element itself must be from a other namespace or does this hold for
it descendants too?
i read the standard, but i am still not 100% sure. i think it just refers to
the element but not to its descendants. i assume, it is to get a
deterministic content model, if a ANY-element is mixed with other elements.
isn't it?

thanks in advance

  Karl
