In case I implied otherwise, there was a discussion in March about whether
xs:anySimpleType was legal. It appears to be:

Subject:	restricting anySimpleType in complexType definition


greetings,

I have a question about restricting anySimpleType.  I wanted to define a
type based on xsd:token that would allow for a few possible values for the
element content and an optional attribute.  After much difficulty, I
finally got the following to validate fine, and it appears to be what I
wanted, but I am not sure if this is legal or just not caught by my
validator (XML Spy 4.4).  The base below is anySimpleType, which I thought
shouldn't work, since it is not a complex type.  Is what I have below
legal, and is there a better way to define a type with an element with
enumerated values and an attribute?


<xsd:complexType name="ExampleType">
  <xsd:simpleContent>
    <xsd:restriction base="xsd:anySimpleType">
      <xsd:enumeration value="a possible value"/>
      <xsd:enumeration value="another possible value"/>
      <xsd:attribute name="anAttribute" type="xsd:token"/>
    </xsd:restriction>
  </xsd:simpleContent>
</xsd:complexType>

thanks,

calvin
