IMHO, an element defaulting scheme should be flexible enough to allow element defaulting in any number of occurrences and level of nesting. The above, although useful, is not flexible; It is more appropriate to design something complete from the ground up instead of compatible workarounds that wont do later on. Also IMHO, the semantics of a defaulting scheme should be a separate group of semantics in a schema language otherwise it gets difficult to follow and maintain/reuse. Something like the attribute-set, or maybe a default-type where it's definition includes or references any combination of complex and simple types. Regards, Manos
