I currently have an XSD document that gives me the following except for the password attribute Type="PasswordDigest".  Can someone tell me how to add this with my existing xsd?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Message xmlns="">
                                                <Password Type="PasswordDigest">testpassword</Password>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="">
	<xs:element name="Message">
				<xs:element ref="Header" minOccurs="0"/>
				<xs:element ref="Body" minOccurs="0"/>
	<xs:element name="Header">
				<xs:element ref="To" minOccurs="0" />
				<xs:element ref="From" minOccurs="0"/>
				<xs:element ref="MessageID" minOccurs="0"/>
				<xs:element ref="SentTime" minOccurs="0"/>
				<xs:element ref="Security" minOccurs="0"/>
	<xs:element name="Body">
				<xs:element ref="DirectoryDownload" minOccurs="0"/>
	<xs:element name="Security">
				<xs:element ref="UsernameToken" minOccurs="0" />
	<xs:element name="UsernameToken">
				<xs:element ref="Username" minOccurs="0" />
				<xs:element ref="Password" minOccurs="0" />   
				<xs:element ref="Nonce" minOccurs="0" />
				<xs:element ref="Created" minOccurs="0" />
	<xs:element name="DirectoryDownload">
				<xs:element ref="AccountID" minOccurs="0" />
				<xs:element ref="VersionID" minOccurs="0" />
				<xs:element ref="Taxonomy" minOccurs="0" />
				<xs:element ref="DirectoryDate" minOccurs="0" />
	<xs:element name="Taxonomy">
				<xs:element ref="TaxonomyCode" minOccurs="0" />
	<xs:element name="To" type="xs:string"/>
	<xs:element name="From" type="xs:string"/>
	<xs:element name="MessageID" type="xs:string"/>
	<xs:element name="SentTime" type="xs:string"/>
	<xs:element name="Username" type="xs:string"/>
	<xs:element name="Password" type="xs:string"/>
	<xs:element name="Nonce" type="xs:string"/>
	<xs:element name="Created" type="xs:string"/>
	<xs:element name="AccountID" type="xs:string"/>
	<xs:element name="VersionID" type="xs:string"/>
	<xs:element name="TaxonomyCode" type="xs:string"/>

you will need a complexType/simpleContent in your definition for password

    <xs:element name="Password">
                <xs:extension base="xs:string">
                    <xs:attribute name="Type"/>

instead of

      <xs:element name="Password" type="xs:string"/>
