   Re: [xml-dev] Who can implement W3C XML Schema ?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Oops. This was in response to Jeff Lowery's clarification of the dual
nature of anyType in the following, and why an instance of myElem can
only have empty content.

> <element name="myElem">
>       <complexType>
>               <complexContent>
>                       <restriction base="anyType"/>
>               </complexContent>
>       </complexType>
> </element>

Sorry about the confusion.
