    First off, DUDE! It's not even a day: way too soon to bump your own thread. Not cool.

    Do you have MS Office? Excel 2007 is your friend when it comes to XML. It really does a lot of heavy lifting. I've run into XML parsing problems a few times and XL really kicked the ass of most of the high-end XML packages I tried. But I'm not an XML coder: people who live in it can use the fancy stuff but schlunks who just need to quickly parse some crap (or fiddle with schema and the data dictionary) don't need all the bells and whistles.

    You can try QuickUML. There are a lot of free XML utilities. There are also a lot of them that aren't free :cool:

    I like to start in XL. Also Notepad++ has a surprising degree of XML functionality: depending on what you're trying to do that might work. For the paid suites try downloading a full trial version if it's just a one-time project. That would at least give you a deadline so you'll get it done.

    Of course, if you can get your hands on Visual Studio 2010 or better that will solve your problem. There you'd use LINQ for VBS. LINQ is f-cking amazing for XML shite. Google that, there a a LOT of platforms that support it. LINQ

    And Dreamweaver CS5 or better might do it for you too. Again, depending on what you need to do

    Good luck.

    I'm not an expert with Visual Paradigm, but as far as I can tell, it has options for importing and exporting the diagrams in XML format, I'm using the community version which is free.
