I have a project I’m working on that requires the use of some extensive XML manipulation.
While XML can be very powerful, XML without a schema is like Java Script objects: no strong typing and the wild west as far as standards are concerned.
A good, solid XML document will have a valid schema to validate against. There are several online tools that can help generate a template of the schema from a sample XML document, like this one.
Visual Studio provides full intellisense for building out your schema.
