Hi,

Yes, I thought that would work too, though the spec seemed a bit vague about
this, and Xerces 1.4.1 could not handle it! It complains that "no circular
definitions are allowed"!

Hi Neil,

Create a union of the two types Score and NoScore, then create a list of the
union.

<X:simpleType name="ScoreAndNoScore">
  <X:union memberTypes="A:Score A:NoScore"/>
</X:simpleType>

<X:simpleType name="ScoreAndNoScoreList">
  <X:list itemType="A:ScoreAndNoScore"/>
</X:simpleType>


That should give you what you want.
