XSD says (taken from Sec 2.2 in the Primer [1]):

"In XML Schema, there is a basic difference between complex types which
allow elements in their content and may carry attributes, and simple types
which cannot have element content and cannot carry attributes"

No.  I meant the integer 12.  The sender MIGHT be working off run-time
type information in a dynamic language, and the recipient MIGHT be
working off WSDL/XSD, but that doesn't matter.  It's purely a SOAP
question: can
simple values have content that "crosses" nodes?

Even though it's independant of schema, I'm curious what XSD says.
Unfortunately I don't have the resources (hours/day and stamina) to
fully comprehend XSD myself.
