Take these two input documents:

schema_1.xsd -
<xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="";>
	<xsd:element name="swissBankAccountNo" type="xsd:string"/>

schema_2.xsd -
<schema xmlns="";>
	<element name="luxembourgBankAccountNo" type="string"/>

Say you're writing a stylesheet to document schemas (I am, in fact) -
how do you, in XSLT, pick up the fact that both elements have, in terms
of XML Schema semantics, the same value for their "type" attribute?

why not?
