Hello,

In the case of mixed="true" I don't think that the text is of type xsd:string.

What's the best way to model "element with text content and
attributes"?  For example:

<foo bar="b" baz="b"> only text allowed </foo>

I've used this before, but it seems bulky:

<xs:complexType name="foo">
    <xs:simpleContent>
        <xs:extension base="xs:string">
            <xs:attribute name="bar" type="xs:string"/>
            <xs:attribute name="baz" type="xs:string"/>
        </xs:extension>
    </xs:simpleContent>
</xs:complexType>


This thread has suggested you can do this:

 <xs:complexType name="foo" mixed="true">
    <xs:attribute name="bar" type="xs:string"/>
    <xs:attribute name="baz" type="xs:string"/>
 </xs:complexType>

Is that right?   If so, is that shorthand for the above?


thanks
