Hello,
this question is probably unrelated to the original post,
I'd like to constrain a complex type's content in such a way that it can
only allow elements of any simple type (built-in or user-defined), so that
their tags could be different :

<xs:complexType name="PropertiesType">
  <xs:sequence>
    <xs:anySimpleType minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
  </xs:sequence>
</xs:complexType>

But xs:anySimpleType can not be used, so I'll have to use xs:any instead and
use some custom validation on top of it,
Is there another way for achieving such a constraint ?

Thanks
Sergey Beryozkin
