Hey guys, I've recently started learning about XML and all the other hordes of file types associated with it.  However, I'm having trouble finding info about how to actually use validated XML files within my game. 

For example, I know how to extract element names using both SAX and DOM, but all this leaves me with is a bunch of Strings and if statements.  Instead, is it possible for the document to actually read the XSD file and extract the file types of the attributes?  So that everything isn't CDATA?

If you already have the XSD, then will generate a set of objects to parse and create new XML documents
