thank you for your answer at first.

I know that similar questions have been asked,
but I would appreciate an answer...

Please consider the following schema...

<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">

   <xs:complexType name="ct_base" block="">
         <xs:element name="A" type="xs:string" />
         <xs:element name="B" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />

   <xs:complexType name="ct_extension">
         <xs:extension base="ct_base">
               <xs:element name="C" type="xs:string" />

   <xs:element name="Test" type="ct_base" block="" />


and this instance

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<Test xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

Please note the empty value of the block-attribute in the complex type
definition "ct_base" and in the element declaration of "Test".

Question: No matter if I use block="extension" in "ct_base" or
block="extension" in "Test". The behaviour is the same error message.
(I do not change anything in the instance)
As I thought, block="extension" on an element declaration would prevent
me from using an element derived by (a chain involving) extension (in a
substitution group), I donīt think, that MSXML is ok, could you please

Thank you
