Hi all,

im reasonably new to xsd and im trying to use it to do an inherent datatype 
conversion for me when i read out of a dom. ie>

<element name="data">
  <complexType>
    <sequence minOccurs="0">
      <element name="boolean" type="boolean" minOccurs="0" />
      <element name="dateTime" type="dateTime" minOccurs="0" />
      <element name="decimal" type="decimal" minOccurs="0" />
      <element name="short" type="short" minOccurs="0" />
      <element name="int" type="int" minOccurs="0" />
      <element name="long" type="long" minOccurs="0" />
      <element name="string" type="string" minOccurs="0" />
    </sequence>
  </complexType>
</element>

would support the xml:

<data>
  <int>1</int>
  <string>hello</string>
</data>

this works fine, but what i would like to do is have an xsd that could be 
used to validate this:

<data>
  <value dt="int">1</value>
  <value dt="string">hello</value>
</data>

im at a complete loss here, any help would be appreciated.

thanks
London
