Yes, restrict the type by setting mixed to false:

  <xs:complexType name = "elementOnly" mixed = "false">
      <xs:restriction base = "AbstractBaseType"></xs:restriction>

Define the simpleContent type by a local simpleType:

  <xs:complexType name = "simpleContent">
      <xs:restriction base = "AbstractBaseType">
          <xs:restriction base = "xs:string"></xs:restriction>
