>What is your problem?
:) my problem is already solved with all the answers I got from my post.
So conclusion: it is not possible to put constraint in CDATA and if
required then put it in element content. This is irrespective of length
of data would be.

Thanks a lot

 If my length of my data is more
 and would not look good from user's perspective to put it as an
attribute so there should be someway to provide this facility. 

If you want it to be element content rather than an attribute then just
do so, CDATA sections have nothing to do with your requirements at all.
Users may choose to use or not CDATA sections for any schema or dtd it
is simply an authoring choice.

If as schema designer you want to allow
instead of
<x b="123"/>
Then XSD schema will allow you to specify that, and to specify that the
content of x is an integer.
What is your problem?
