XSD - Max Element size (>30 characters)


We have to import multiple xsd with nested schemas, so far we have no problem.

The problem is related to the length of some elements, elements that have over then 35 characters


<xsd:element name="senderSoftwareDocumentSignatureHash" type="signatureHashSubsetType" minOccurs="0">

<xsd:element name="senderSoftwareCertificationNumber" type="xsd:string" minOccurs="0">

We can't ask to the provider to change the lenght of both of elements because they are used by othe client's (like us) and the owner of the xsd's is Portuguese Government.

Is that possible to allow/change the name of the fields/elements with more than 30 characters?

We'll wait for good news
