I am creating a schema that has amongst its elements a date element ie type
= xs:date. This element is causing me a headache as it is not mandatory. I
have been unable to find a way to allow this element to be left blank (I
have tried setting minOcc to 0 but I get the error "Invalid value for
datatype date"). I am beginning to thing that I will have to create a
default of 9999-01-01 to allow people to skip over this field. Can anyone
tell me different
