By specifying fixed="true" you are saying that the value for this type is
fixed, and that value is "true". Is that what you want, or are you trying to
define an enumeration consisting of a fixed set of tokens? If it is the
latter, you might try:
If, on the other hand, the value is numeric, for example, a 32-bit hex value
preceded by a # sign, you may define the type as:
There is nothing kludgy about using facets that include regular expressions.
It all depends on what you want the end result to be.
Hope this helps.
