java works, but xmlspy seems broken and some xsd and space questions?

P: n/a
hi, trying to convert some csv files into xsml and pulling a few hairs
out :(. using the files below. a java program will parse the csv and
take care of strange names and notes that line breaks in them.

eventiually i want to generate the xslt from a xml file (all the files
and java code are at http://tayek.com/~ray/spy1/).

the java code (1.4) does the right thing (it just does the
transformation). xmlspy seems really broken when i hit f10 to run the
inputDocument.xml through the sampleT1.xslt (i am trying the enterprize
version). even putting in <xsl:text> </xsl:text>", the spy just
seems to ignore it (but the java does something reasonable).

also, i have text in my xslt like <outputRow> and later </outputRow>.
this is one of the things what xmlspy seems to discard.

the field names from the csv (called inputFieldName in the xml) can
contain some screwball stuff line ' and ", so i made these text
elements an xs:string. they can not contain any other xml (i.e. no
<...>). so is xs:string the right way to do this? or should one use
normalized string?

what does nillable mean or do? - it lets things be empty? is there a way
to force things to have just attributes and no content?

there should be *no* text or any other markup (ignoring specal for the
moment) anywhere except for inside an inputField or an inputFieldName.
is there a way to tell the schema thia?

eventually, i want to use the a file like inputDocumentMap.xml to
generate the xslt using xslt (i am doing this now in java, but with a
different inputDocumentMap.xml file).

any pointers would be appreciated.

thanks
