Enumerating a set of values using the pattern facet versus theenumeratio

Hi Folks,


Below are two XML Schema element declarations. Both enumerate a set of values for the <type> element. The first uses the pattern facet to enumerate the set of values. The second uses the enumeration facet. Is there a reason to prefer one over the other? Or, are they identical for all practical purposes?  /Roger


<xs:element name="type">
<xs:restriction base="xs:string">
<xs:pattern value="contact|acquaintance|friend|met|co\-worker|colleague|co\-resident|neighbor|child|parent|sibling|spouse|kin|muse|crush|date|sweetheart|me|agent|emergency" />
