XML Schemas (long winded)

I am trying to create an XML Schema based on the XML-Data
<http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/NOTE-XML-data-0105/> note submitted to the W3C.
I am using the MS XMLDOM interfaces.  My question is this - I am trying to
limit the content in certain situations so I have created a simple schema as
<Schema name="myschema" xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xml-data"
	<AttributeType name="Flags" dt:type="int"/>

	<ElementType name="FileName" content="textOnly" model="closed">
		<attribute type="Flags"/>

	<ElementType name="Files" content="eltOnly" model="closed">
		<element type="FileName" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="*"/>

	<ElementType name="Package" content="eltOnly" model="closed">
		<element type="Files" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1"/>
Now, based on the content an model shouldn't FileName be constrained such
that I can only have elements (FileName) in the Files tag so that the
following excerpt would be illegal...
<Files>This should be NON-VALID
	<FileName flags="1">Test.doc</FileName>

And if I am right, does anyone know how to tell MS's XMLDOM to validate
using the schema.  I have included the following line at the top of my xml
file -
<Package xmlns:data="x-schema:updateSchema.xml">
