Christopher,

Originally I was targeting Excel to be the destination for my output, that's why I used SpreadsheetML schema to write xml. Although OO opens the output (it is supposed to work with all Excel files) but sometimes there are extra blank rows or some other formatting is lost... I've tried to find technical details on Microsoft's forums (I had similar problems with the Excel for Mac) but without luck so far. I'm gonna try OO crowd also, maybe they would suggest something.

OpenOffice.org might be the perfect complement to XML_TAB.  It's a free
open source office suite.  It's spreadsheet application is called Calc.
Intrinsic support for xml--that is in fact the file structure they use.
