True. But do you think the second scenario is feasible? To be more specific: can I use SAX to process a schema and generate nodes based on the availability in the second xml? Or - even better - when I do my validation using SAX, can I generate nodes based on the presence/absence of nodes?

But remember that for a given schema, there's an infinite number of possible
instances, and choosing a plausible one might not always be easy.

Subject: using xml schema to generate xml

I'm thinking of a scenario where I can generate an (instance) xml-document based on an xml-schema and another xml-stream or -file. I think I can parse the schema with xslt and lookup the appropriate values in the other xml-file.

However, a more beautiful solution - I think - would be that parsing the xml together with the schema, and since some errors events will occur, attaching code to those events that will put some nodes in the resulting xml. Has anybody had some experience with one of these scenarios?
