Currency-type?

Recommended Posts

What if I have an element that might be a decimal preceded by a currency symbol?

<price>$111.50</price><xs:element name="price" type="xs:string"/><xs:element name="price" type="xs:decimal"/>

What's the problem?

IMHO, it would be best to describe that via an attribute, e.g.

<price currency="USD">111.50</price>

and infer the preceding "$" upon interpretation.

I'm guessing it can't be defined as a decimal, so then as a string there would be (AFAIK) very little validation.

<price currency="USD">111.50</price>

That seems like a nice approach which avoids the issue. Thanks.
