hum...so the page says that it shouldn't be valid, and yet it passes
validation...

I don't know why it would be wrong:

Tom,

If you follow the following link and look the row for elemZ001, you can find
the
expected result:
 
http://www.w3.org/XML/2001/05/xmlschema-test-collection/result-ms-element.ht
m
which is invalid!

As I recall, Henry has posted that:
   * xs:string is not a valid restriction of xs:anySimpleType.  (ht)


Thx,

-Stanley
