xml format and importing

Hi Guys,

I have an XML file that I need to import into a MySQL database, but the xml format I am being given is not like anything I have seen before. It looks like:

<xml xmlns:s='uuid:xxx'
<s:Schema id='RowsetSchema'>
<s:ElementType name='row' content='dt1' rs:ctout='30'>
<s:AttributeType name='ID' rs:number='1' rs:nullable='true' rs:writeunknown='true'>
<s:datatype dt:type='string' dt:maxLength='255'/>
##this continues with a lot more <s:AttributeType> and <s:datatype>##

<z:row ID='123' Case_Create_Date='2011-02-02 11:59:30' Contact='Bob' . . . />
## This continues with all the data on a single line ##

Ideally I would like to use the schema section to create a table from, and then import the data element accordingly, but I have neve seen an XML file in this format, where the data is grouped on a single line, as opposed to being in individual tags.

Has anyone got any experience of working with this type of file? and could anyone suggest ways of importing it?
