Hi Reshma,

Several attributes are allowed.

See http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#declare-type

See content model of complexType:

Content: (annotation?, (simpleContent | complexContent | ((group | all |
choice | sequence)?, ((attribute | attributeGroup)*, anyAttribute?)))).

For beginners, the XML Schema Part 0 Primer is always a good starting point:
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-0/

At the end of the page, there is a list of xml schema elements:
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-0/#index

There is one link to an example for each xml schema element and another one
leading to a more detailed description/definition of the element structure
(including allowed attributes, content model and so on).

Personally I also like ZVON's schema browser:
http://www.zvon.org/xxl/xmlSchema2001Reference/Output/Schema/index.html


Best regards,
Peter

Hi Reshma,

As far as I know is it possible, but I've not yet a lot of xml-schema 
knowledge now. I would use attributeGroup & refer, when you need the 
same attribute for other elements.
