- Thread-topic: [xml-dev] Basic XSD question
Thanks for your reply. How would the xsd to look like if I want to have
to have a document
- that contains elements in no specific order
- where some elements must be present and always have values of a
Neighter all, sequence nor choice seems to be correct.

Yes, because the default for minLength is 0. The behavior you see is
therefore the expected behavior.

Because you've placed the maxOccurs facet on the choice, not on the
individual element - if you intend to restrict element <foo> to one
occurrence max, the maxOccurs facet has to be an attribute of the
<xs:element> element. You may also not want to use a choice there, since
there is only one possible value.
