Restrictions on attribute values

Hi,

XML and XSD newbie here.  Is it possible to restrict the values of an attribute?  Below is my try #1 but it doesn't work.

......
......
<xs:attribute name="intHour" type="xs:int" use="required" >
                <xs:simpleType>
                  <xs:restriction base="xs:integer">
                        <xs:minInclusive value="0"/>
                        <xs:maxInclusive value="23"/>
                  </xs:restriction>
            </xs:simpleType>
    </xs:attribute>
  </xs:complexType>

how can I make intHour only accept values from 0 to 23?

Many thanks...

you can't give the type twice
If you set the type of the attribute (type="xs:int")
you can't redefine it in the xs:attribute content
drop that and you will be OK

    <xs:element name="test">
        <xs:complexType>
            <xs:simpleContent>
                <xs:extension base="xs:string">
                    <xs:attribute name="time" >
                        <xs:simpleType>
                            <xs:restriction base="xs:integer">
                                <xs:minInclusive value="0"/>
                                <xs:maxInclusive value="23"/>
                            </xs:restriction>
                        </xs:simpleType>
                    </xs:attribute>
                </xs:extension>
            </xs:simpleContent>
        </xs:complexType>
    </xs:element>
