  1. Instead of specifying xsd:dateTime on type, create a custom type that would be a union of xsd:dateTime, and your own type that defines "..." as a valid enumeration value.
    Thank you, this is very useful and exactly what I hoped for :)
  2. Hi folks,I want to have an element that either contains a dateTime or the literal string "...". Is there any way to specify this in Schema?The element in question is the creationTimestamp element as below:

    	 <complexType name="persistedEntity">		  <sequence>			  <element name="editedBy" type="string" minOccurs="0" />			  <element name="creationTimestamp" type="dateTime" minOccurs="0" />			  <element name="status" type="syringe:entityStatus" minOccurs="0" />		  </sequence>	  </complexType>	<complexType name="role">		<complexContent>			<extension base="syringe:mnemonizedPersistedEntity">				<sequence>					<element name="name" type="string" />					<element name="builtIn" type="boolean" minOccurs="0" />				</sequence>			</extension>		</complexContent>	</complexType>

    I would like to be able to use it as such:

    			<role>				<editedBy>SYSTEM</editedBy>				<creationTimestamp>...</creationTimestamp>				<status>NORMAL</status>				<mnemonic>ADMIN</mnemonic>				<name>ADMIN</name>				<builtIn>true</builtIn>			</role>

    The "..." is for testing purposes, a way to say "I don't care what dateTime is here", whereas the actual dateTime is used in any other case.Cheers,Sybren
