Hi,

I would like to use XML Schema to enforce something like the following:

<definition id="12345">
 ...
</definition>

<use_definitions>
  <def ref="12345"/>
  ...
</use_definitions>


So, if an ID is used as a reference in the <def> element, there HAS TO
BE a correpsonding <definition> element with the same ID. Is it possible
to do this in XML Schema? Ideas?

Thanks.
