Timezone ambiguities in date built-in type



Given an XML document instance with time-zone, and a schema document without a time-zone – how should we validate facets such as maxExclusive?

Please consider the following example:


The time-zone in facet is not defined – can we claim that the instance is invalid, or should we deduce that since time-zone can’t be more than 14 hours, the XML instance is valid (since the year is smaller in the instance)?


<root MyAtt="1967-04-02Z"/>


<?xml version="1.0" ?>

<xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">

                <xsd:element name="root">


                                <xsd:attribute name="MyAtt">


                                                                <!-- begin restrictions -->

                                                                <xsd:restriction base="xsd:date">

                <xsd:maxExclusive value='1968-04-02'/>

                                                                <!-- end of restrictions -->
