Hi Folks,

I want to verify that I am using terminology consistent with the XSD specification.

Consider these two simpleTypes:

    <xsd:simpleType name="LotteryNumbers">
                <xsd:list itemType="OneToNinetyNine"/>
            <xsd:length value="6"/>

    <xsd:simpleType name="OneToNinetyNine">
        <xsd:restriction base="xsd:positiveInteger">
            <xsd:maxInclusive value="99"/>

Terminology: constructed from 

LotteryNumbers is "constructed from" OneToNinetyNine.

Terminology: type definition chain

The "type definition chain" formed by the above simpleTypes is:  LotteryNumbers --> OneToNinetyNine

Terminology: base type

The "base type" of LotteryNumbers is: 

                <xsd:list itemType="OneToNinetyNine"/>

Is that terminology correct?
