Having a small problem with custom Intellisense

I have set up custom Intellisense for our project. (In a nutshell, we will
have ASP.NET controls based on many of the statndard WebControls, but with a
few extensions that we will be adding). I've put a custom XSD in the
schemas\xml directory and it works pretty great. It's largely based on the

My problem is that while this works great for most controls, providing
Intellisense whenever I have:

<foo:FooTextBox runat=server... />

I have one nagging problem left. I plan on having a "FooDropDownList"
control based on the ASP.NET DrownDownList control. I'd like Intellisense to
only allow <asp:ListItem/> without tagging it as invalid. However, I cannot
override by default prefix of "foo". I've tried several educated guesses, but
I always end up with <foo:ListItem/>. And since ListItem is sealed, I can't
just make a dummy FooListItem.

Here is the xsd that I have so far:

<!-- <foo:DropDownList> -->
<xsd:complexType name="DropDownListDef" vs:noambientcontentmodel="true">
<xsd:element name="ListItem" type="ListItemDef" />
<xsd:attribute name="BorderStyle" type="BorderStyle" vs:readonly="true" />
<!-- edits... -->

I'm not a xml/xsd guru, so I'm not sure what I'd need to do to get it to
work. Ideally I'd like the following to be valid (and only the following):

<foo:FooDropDownList runat=server>

Thanks in advance. This is the last piece of the puzzle.
