My guess is that they are not defining an element or attribute.
Instead, they are associating a datatype with a field in a form.


All the best, Ashok

      XForms Data Model




Using the following usage example,

2.3 Usage Comparison
2.3.1 XML Schema syntax
<xsd:element name="maritalStatus" default="married">
  <xsd:simpleType base="string">
    <xsd:enumeration value="single"/>
    <xsd:enumeration value="married"/>
  </xsd:simpleType>
</xsd:element>


2.3.2 XForms syntax
<string name="maritalStatus">
  <value>single</value>
  <value>married</value>
</string>

In the above XForms syntax, is there a flag that indicates if it is either
an element _decl_ or attribute _decl_? I believe I am missing something
substantial.

The chairs of the XForms Working Group have asked me to deliver the
following gap analysis document to the XML Schema Working group.
