Thanks. So the fact that <anyAttribute> appears in the W3 XMLSchema's schema doesn't mean that an arbitrary attribute of my own making may be introduced into a schema conforming to the W3 schema. If I placed <anyAttrbute> in *my* schema, I would expect that instance documents would be able to contain attributes that aren't explicitly defined by my schema. I'd expect the same to be true for my schema, which is merely an instance document of the W3 schema.
