I have found two limitations for XMLSpy 3.0 wich were checked with XMLspy

- precision/scale facets are not yet supported
- enumerations with spaces

A third one, wich I didn't chek with XMLSpy support is Derivation of
complextypes by restriction

If you also have a list of more limitations I would be glad to know.

I have to say I always got an answer within the hour! so I guess they were
quite busy as Alexander already said in respons to you with the XML devcon

I know, I have the same problems. I keep testing my code to see why is does
not work just to find out it is not supported. I guess we will have to wait
until XMLspy reaches a state were it supports 100% of the XML schema spec,
but that will be only if the XML spec reaches the recommendation fase.

nonetheless XMLSpy is AFAIK the product that has implemented the most
features from the XML schema spec.
