Title: XML Schema: Character Exclusions

I am trying to get a schema design to take a 3-character string of digits 001 through to 999,  but to exclude 000.

I started using a pattern to match the 3 character string of digits, and "[0-9]{3}" works fine.  Then I tried to exclude "000" by "[0-9]{3} - [(000)]" but this restricts all three character digit string.  What am I doing wrong?

My parser is Xerces-J 2.6.

Thanks for any help.
