dtd numeric
What about this . . .


You can try what I've done, which works, but takes XSL/T or other post
process to reconstruct:

<!ELEMENT personalinfo ( whatever . . . .   )>
<!ATTLIST personalinfo
        ssn_a ( 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 0 ) #REQUIRED
        ssn_b ( 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 0 ) #REQUIRED
        ssn_c ( 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 0 ) #REQUIRED

. . . . and so on, making one default content model type attribute for
each ssn digit

Ugly, but, until schemas give us data types . . . .
