Here is a partial list of valid XSD data types for SQL Server 2005:

xsd:int or xsd:integer
xsd:decimal
xsd:date
xsd:dateTime
xsd:string
xsd:base64Binary

Note that in SQL Server 2005, the timezone needs to be included in the date or dateTime element or attribute value, for example:

<Authors>
    <Author AuthorID="1" FirstName="John" LastName="Doe"
            IsIndependent="true"
            DateJoined="1992-05-01Z" DateTimeJoined="1992-05-01T00:00:00Z"/>
</Authors>

Note the existence of the letter Z at the end of the date and datetime attributes.
