If you only have to validate the syntax of the text, why transform it to 
XML first and not validating the text itself?
You might consider to adapt an existing grammar of JavaCC [1].
There is an introduction example parsing some text (postscript) [2].
JavaCC is quite powerful, it was used for example to test the grammar of 
XPointer / XQuery during their development by the W3C.
But if you only have a XML Schema for validation the approach Bob 
suggested might be easier. Depends as well on your existing knowledge of 
the techniques.
