Default XSD.EXE Gen’d C# Deserializing w/ .xsd Subst Group

Hi,

I am trying to figure out how to get XSD.EXE (when generating C# classes from an .xsd) to add the XmlArrayItemAttribute Deserization Annotations to my C# generated class output: My specific case is when the .xsd has an element that holds an array of substitutionGroup'ed items.

Following is an example of a matching set of xsd, xml, xsd.exe command to generate C#, and the output C#.

When running a unit-test on the C#, the serialization only populates correctly if I manually add the following XmlArrayItemAttributes to the generated C# (directly below, and in complete context in the code block later in this post).

Can anyone make a suggestion of how to make XSD.EXE add these annotations (or another method of having this deserialize correctly)?

Thanks!

******MANUALLY ADDED XmlArrayItemAttribute ANNOTATIONS****** (see below Code Block for complete context)
[System.Xml.Serialization.XmlArrayItemAttribute("El ephant", typeof(ElephantType))]
[System.Xml.Serialization.XmlArrayItemAttribute("Ti ger", typeof(TigerType))]
[System.Xml.Serialization.XmlArrayItemAttribute("Mo nkey", typeof(MonkeyType))]
public AnimalAbstractType[] Animals {
get {
return this.animalsField;
}
...
