Howto create form with entry fields from XML/XSD schema ??

Assume there is a XSD schema which describes the maximum possible number of fields which can occur in
a XML document.

How do I create such a form either as a HTML form or a text file from the XSD schema source?
The DOM tree is automatically created by the parser.
So there is only the need to create a form from this DOM tree.
I feel that such a tool should be already available because it is a standard task.

Does someone know such a utility?

Well XForms can use (is supposed to use) a W3C schema to specify the
data types/structure of the form. However the normal browsers like
Mozilla or IE do not support that although there are plugin based
extensions for MSIE on Windows I think and I know there are experimental
browsers like X-Smiles supporting XForms in XHTML.
XForms will be part of XHTML 2.0.
The XForms page is here
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/
and contains links to the specification
http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/REC-xforms-20031014/
and intro for people coming from HTML
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/2003/...r-html-authors
and a list of implementations

Hi Guys, I have a need to create a html form based on my schema. I initially decided to do this using xql, have got some way but am finding this difficult (it may be as I am very new to xql).

We need the forms to provide a UI for users to edit the underlying xml documents represented by the schema. Im wandering if there is an easy way...

My data entry form has thirty one fields. After I go to a new record and enter all the fields, how can I create another new record out of the same data? Sometimes when I am entering new records, only two or three fields change from one new record to another. If I could create a new record out of the same data and then edit the two or three fields, it would save a lot of data entry time. Thanks! Cassandra
