Thank you.
So my previous email is wrong?
The namespace has precedence over the processContents

I think that these are orthogonal properties.  First, the wildcard matches
any elements that pass the namespace check.  Then, for any elements that
match, you process them according to the method defined by the
"processContents".  So, from your options "skip only if the namespace ..."
--- otherwise, if it's in the target namespace, then this particle wouldn't
match the element at all, and either some other particle would match it
(maybe an outer choice has other options) or otherwise the instance would
be invalid.

When using both processContents and namespace attributes in an xsd:any
which one of the two has precedence?

For example:
<xsd:any namespace=##other processContents=skip/>

Should I just skip when processing or should I skip only if the namespace
of the observed element in the XML instance is from a namespace other than
the target namespace of the schema?
