I wouldn't have thought it made any sense to have a default value for an element, since elements don't have values. A default value for an attribute would make sense, but that isn't what you are trying to do there. Actually I am not sure what you are trying to do.

I would suggest getting a proper learning resource for XML Schema. There are a lot of Internet sites which post reference information about various things but most of them don't have much information beyond that. W3schools is one of those. You can't learn Schema from brief descriptions of its features.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
