I've used the wtp xsd schema editor for a long time and was always happy
with it but today I've noticed strange behaviour while editing and
validating a pattern facet:


First of all I found relevant differences in validation of regular
expressions between Regular Expression Wizard and XSD Schema Editor.

So what's going wrong?
Suppose I want to define an range of letters using their hex values e.g.
[\x40-\x42]+. Using the Regular Expression Wizard from the properties
view this expression is fine and testable. After finishing I'm going to
validate the schema (context menu in the source editor -> validate).
Then the validator reports the following error:

"InvalidRegex: Pattern value '[\x40-\x42]+' is not a valid regular
expression. The reported error was: 'This expression is not supported in
the current option setting.'."

I know this is reported by Xerces but I've found no way neither to show
nor to control the regex options. Is this a bug or am I doing something


The second issue I'd noticed appears when I've edited the expression
with the wizard again. The value of the pattern node has changed but
also a value attribute to the type node is added as shown below.

- schema source fragment before editing:

<xsd:simpleType name="XSDSimpleType">
<xsd:restriction base="xsd:string">

- schema source fragment after editing:

<xsd:simpleType name="XSDSimpleType" value="[\x40-\x43]+">
<xsd:restriction base="xsd:string">

Seems to be a buggy ...
