Is it possible to set Stylus Studio to type all elements as string as a default setting when "Create Schema from XML Content..."?

Thanks.

Hi Eric,
the XMLSchema builder always tries to guess the best type given the sample data; if you need to force a xs:string you can either preprocess the XML data to make its content a generic string (i.e. replace each character with '#') or perform a two-step conversion from XML to DTD and from DTD to XSD.

Hope this helps,
Alberto

Thanks Alberto, the "replace with #" method works great.
