This may seem like a simple problem, but I can't find any references to how best to solve
I need to process a series of xml documents, which can be in a number of different
formats. I don't know in advance the type of the documents, only their URLs. What is the
best way of analysing what type the document is (and how to process it)? Is there a "best
practice" for this?
For example, should I
1) Try and read the document type declaration? If so, what function/property should I be
using? I'm using MS XMLDOM (from IE 5).
2) Try and look for a link to a XML schema?
3) Just start walking the tree looking for particular nodes in a particular order?
Thanks if you can help.
