Hi,

Yes, this has come up a number of times recently, but I personally didn't 
find the solutions particularly appealing!

Maybe people that want to do this sort of thing should consider re-modelling 
their data so that it works to XSD's strengths.  For example, they could 
model it so that the resulting XML looked something like:

<task>
    <!-- common task elements here -->
    <taskType1>
        <!-- Task 1 things -->
    </taskType1>
</task>

or:

<task>
    <!-- common task elements here -->
    <taskType2>
        <!-- Task 1 things -->
    </taskType2>
</task>

With suitable attributeGroups, regular groups, and types XSD can model this 
sort of thing well.

HTH,

Pete.
