I'm documenting a database schema that ships with utilities to import and export the data in XML format. The schema is doc'ed in detail, but I want to specify simply & cleanly in the documentation of the XML formats which elements can repeat (and possibly other schema rules that will be enforced by the utility parsing the XML).

There are currently no XSL files supporting the XML.
