Re: Extending anyType

Hmmm, that's strange because even if extending
'anyType' is legal, the example below should fail.  I
just checked the schema for schemas and 'anyType'
seems to have been declared with a mixed content type
(ie. its 'mixed' attribute is set to true).  The type
that I extended from 'anyType' below uses an
element-only content type.  This is illegal, since the
content type of both the base and derived type must
both be either element-only or mixed.

Here are the different results I get when I try this
example on different parsers/tools:

SQC (Schema Quality Checker) : complains about
extension of 'anyType' (ie. it doesn't allow the
extension of 'anyType')

Xerces-J : Doesn't complain at all

Xerces-C : Complains about the fact that the content
type of the base type is mixed and for the derived
type is element-only.
