Thanks.

Since this is a mixed content then the textual data is not restricted at all -- can the textual content be further restricted by derivation even if it is mixed? I mean -- can it be changed to an xsd:integer? I think not, but I don't know.

Thanks.

Shlomo.

	What is the semantics of the following XSDL snippet?
	 

		<xsd:element name="foo">
		    <xsd:complexType mixed="true"/>
		</xsd:element>

allows character data content but no element children. Pretty much the same as anySimpleType, except that it's complex - which means you can derive a "real" complex type from it by extension.

	 
	Does it mean the same as 
	 

		<xsd:element name="foo">
		    <xsd:complexType/>
		</xsd:element>

No, that one doesn't allow character data content.

	 
     Is the meaning <xsd:complexType mixed="false"/> the same as <xsd:complexType/> ?
	 
Yes.
