Hi Roger,
   This seems to be possible with XML Schema 1.1 assertions. Here's an
example please,

   <xs:simpleType name="Person-name">
        <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
	      <xs:assertion test="(string-length(tokenize($value,'\s')[1]) =
(1 to 100)) and matches(tokenize($value,'\s')[1], 'REG-EX_1')" />
	      <xs:assertion test="(string-length(tokenize($value,'\s')[2]) =
1) and matches(tokenize($value,'\s')[2], 'REG-EX_2')" />
	      <xs:assertion test="(string-length(tokenize($value,'\s')[3]) =
(1 to 100)) and matches(tokenize($value,'\s')[3], 'REG-EX_3')" />
	</xs:restriction>
   </xs:simpleType>
