If you really need to have any sort of content within your body then you can define the body tag to contain a CDATA section.  Then your document will look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<message ... >
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<filter ... >

I'm sure there are a lot of other complicated ways to do this, but this is simple and it works.

Hope this helps,
Tim Bornholtz

I would like to create a XML Schema that would define the structure of an
XML document that contains XML document

Typically, something like

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<message ... >
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<filter ... >

I tried defining the schema like this, using different definitions for the
body element, but I can't validate it.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema";
elementFormDefault="qualified" attributeFormDefault="unqualified">
    <xs:element name="message" type="MessageType"/>
    <xs:complexType name="MessageType">
            <xs:element type="xs:NMTOKEN" name="messageid"/>
            <xs:element type="xs:anyType" name="body"/>

The reason I need this is because I have to define a structure of a message
that is able any type of body. So I can't define the type of the body (using
a choice, for instance).

Any suggestion welcome,

Happy New Year
