Oops, I think I missed a bit.  I think you have to do this in two stages:

1. Create the positive double by restricting double.

2. Extending the new positive double simpleType into a simpleContent.

e.g.

  <xs:simpleType name="positiveDouble">
    <xs:restriction base="xs:double">
      <xs:minExclusive value="0"/>
    </xs:restriction>
  </xs:simpleType>

  <xs:element name="wingarea">
    <xs:complexType>
      <xs:simpleContent>
        <xs:extension base="positiveDouble">
          <xs:attribute name="unit" use="optional" default="FT2">
            <xs:simpleType>
              <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
                <xs:enumeration value="M2"/>
                <xs:enumeration value="FT2"/>
              </xs:restriction>
            </xs:simpleType>
          </xs:attribute>
        </xs:extension>
      </xs:simpleContent>
    </xs:complexType>
  </xs:element>

HTH,

Pete.
