It's covered by section 11 of the tutorial.

In RELAX NG, you specify the element name and content separately, 
regardless of whether the name is specified as a single name or an infinite 
class of names.  To write a pattern that matches an element of any name 
with any attributes and any children, you have to spell it out explicitly 
with a recursive pattern. For example, if you want whatever to contain an 
arbitrary single well-formed XML element, you could write:

start = element whatever { any }
any = element * { attribute * { text }*, (any|text)* }
