Hi Pine,

The type "swe:Quantity" specifies the data type: The element "value" must 
contain a xsd:double. 

I wrote a little list, which XML-schema datatype belongs to which SWE-common 

SWE type         content type
---------------  ----------------
Quantity         double
Category         token
Boolean          boolean
Count            integer
Time             dateTime
Text             string


BTW: My spam filter marks your e-mail as suspicious because the real-name 
equals the localpart of the address and contains no vowels.
