XML Convert 2.0, which will be available soon as 
a commercial product, converts flat files into XML
and vice versa. It can handle comma-separated-value
files. XML Convert does not use a DTD to describe
the flat file format, since a DTD is used to describe
the format of a class of XML documents. Instead,
XML Convert uses an XML language called XFlat for 
describing flat file formats.

You can download the beta version of XML Convert 2.0
for evaluation from http://www.unidex.com/. The beta
copy will stop working on June 10.
