You can't: it's a classic example of a co-occurrence constraint, which XML
Schema 1.0 doesn't support. Wait for 1.1, or use Relax NG or schematron, or
change the attribute name from "type" to "xsi:type".
The content model for an element can only depend on the element name and the
value of its xsi:type attribute.

I just want to know how I would do the following:



  <test type="1" value="1" display="disp"/>

  <test type="2" value="100" />



I want the 'display' attribute to be available for use depending on what the
value for the 'type' attribute is.


How can I do this in a XSD (XML schema)??


Thanks you in advance
