if this is the requirement you must change the contents of the USAddress to
be optional e.g.

<xs:compleType name="USAddress">
	<xs:sequence minOccurs="0">
		<xs:element name="StreetNumPrefix"/>
		<xs:element name="StreetNumber"/>
		etc etc
	</xs:sequence>
</xs:complexType>

this will allow either <USAddress/> or
<USAdress>
	<StreetNumPrefix></StreetNumPrefix>
	<StreetNumber></StreetNumber>
</USAdress>

or you can allow each sub item to be optional

<xs:compleType name="USAddress">
	<xs:sequence>
		<xs:element name="StreetNumPrefix" minOccurs="0"/>
		<xs:element name="StreetNumber" minOccurs="0"/>
		etc etc
	</xs:sequence>
</xs:complexType>

Thanks Colin,
What you said is right, I will not get a parsing error if the node is
removed.
But as per the requirement, I get a noce <USAddress/> in case nothing is
there
So i need a way to handle that.
Is there a way to do that?

Thanks,
Anitha.
