Re: Anonymous Elements
I am just curous to know what you are trying to acheive through definition of an "anonymous element". It does not make sense to define an <xsd:element> without a name within your schema. What you can do is to have an <xsd:any>.This element will allow you to extend the instancet with elements not specified by the schema. What you are first referring to in your email is about anonymous types. Anonymous types are used to express intent that the types are not intended for reuse. So they are defined local to the element declaration. What you have to understand is that Elements and attributes are the items that actually appear in your instance that the schema defines. Types are just the metadata for descrbing the structure and content of these elements/attributes. -Menon On 4/26/05, aspsa <aspsa@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Hi, folks. > > As I understand it, anonymous elements are most often used with the > <xs:complexType> XML Schema element.
