Built-in Datatypes Lexical Representation Examples

This section provides lexical representation examples for some commonly used built-in datatypes.

Before going into details of each built-in datatype, I compiled a list of lexical representation examples of some commonly used built-in datatypes.

"boolean" - Any of 4 Boolean values: "1", "0", "true", "false".

"decimal" - Any decimal numbers, like "-1234.456".

"integer" - Any integer numbers, like "-1234456".

"float" - Any floating-point numbers, like "-1234.456e-789".

"double" - Any floating-point numbers, same as "float", like "-1234.456e-789".

"hexBinary" - Any data in hex encoding, like "6865726F6E6779616E672E636F6D".

"base64Binary" - Any data in Base64 encoding, like "aGVyb25neWFuZy5jb20=".

"dateTime" - Date and time, like "2012-12-23T14:19:00".

"dateTimeStamp" - Date and time with timezone required, like "2012-12-23T14:19:00.000-05:00".

"date" - Date only, like "2002-12-23".

"time" - Time only, like "14:19:00.000-05:00".

"gYear" - Year only, like "2002".

"gMonth" - Month only, like "--05" (May of any year).

"gDay" - Day only, like "---05" (the 5th day of any month of any year).

"gYearMonth" - Year and month only, like "2002-12".

"gMonthDay" - Month and day only, like "--05-23" (May 23 of any year).

"duration" - Period of time, like "P0001Y02M03DT04H05M06.000S".

"yearMonthDuration" - Period of time in years and months, like "P0001Y02M".

"yearMonthDuration" - Period of time in days, hours, minutes and seconds, like "P03DT04H05M06.000S".

"string" - Any string, like " Herong \n Yang ".

"normalizedString" - Any string with \t, \r, and \n replaced by " ", like " Herong Yang ".

"token" - Any string with \t, \r, and \n replaced by " ", whitespaces collapsed and trimmed, like "Herong Yang".

"language" - Any language code, like "en-US" or "fr-CA".

"Name" - Any XML "Name" values, like "xs:schema".

"NCName" - Any no-colon XML "Name" values, like "schema".

"NMTOKEN" - Any XML "NMTOKEN" (Name Token) values, like "1st_row:2nd_seat".

"QName" - Any qualified names, like "xs:QName".

"anyURI" - Any IRI (Internationalized Resource Identifier), like "http://www.herongyang.com/XSD/".
