Yes. You can define the Job alement as being of type xs:anyType. Then you
define a number of complex types, e.g. one called "Normal" - these are
subtypes of anyType by definition. An instance that specifies
xsi:type="Normal" will then be validated against the complex type definition
of this name.

In the XML file you mean? Like this?

 

<Job xsi:type="Normal">

            <El1>...</El1>

<El2>...</El2>

</Job>

 

Saying that this "Job" element is of type e.g. "Normal"? Thereby specifying
the elements within the element?

 

What would this look like in my XSD?
