   RE: [xml-dev] Restriction of MIXED

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Title: Restriction of MIXED
Hi John,
If you want the restricted type to be mixed, you have to explicitly use mixed="true" on the restricted type as well (the quality of being mixed is not inherited.)  If you don't want the restricted type to allow mixed content, you can specify mixed="false" or not use the mixed attribute at all, since it defaults to false.
Hope that helps,

Any thoughts?

Conceptually, it would seem fair enough to create a restriction where mixed='false'.

If I define a complexType as having mixed content, what is the value of "mixed" on a complexType which restricts it? Do I have to explicitly include the mixed attribute and can it differ from it's base type?
