RE: schema content model question

schema fuzz
In XML Schema, you can add attributes to an element with simple content
using an anonymous complex type as a child of the element declaration.
Something like will work:

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

<xs:element name="foo">
   <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
    <xs:enumeration value="fizz"/>
    <xs:enumeration value="fuzz"/>
   <xs:attribute name="bar" type="Bar"/>

<xs:simpleType name="Bar">
 <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
  <xs:enumeration value="glorp"/>
  <xs:enumeration value="glop"/>


The syntax for RELAX NG (12 lines) is somewhat simpler than the XML Schema
syntax (18 lines). For example:

<element name="foo" xmlns="http://relaxng.org/ns/structure/1.0">
 <attribute name="bar">

Here is a valid instance for both schemas, tested with MSV:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<foo bar="glorp">fuzz</foo>

Subject:  schema content model question

I have been attempting to create an XML Schema content model for an
element like the following:

- the element should contain text only, no subeleemnts (simpleContent?)
- the permissable values of the element should be restricted to a list of
enumerated string values
- the element should also have attributes with values which are also
restricted to list of enumerated string values.

Is this possible? I have made several attempts which I will send if it is
useful for discussion but I thought perhaps someone can just provide the
