  Thanks for your reply! 
  I already have a standard XML schema. The problem is that is very large and indeed, contains a lot of rich text and recursivity. And i dont know whether i can integrate these 2 items into XForms. This schema was integrated into InfoPath, but now that we want to replace InfoPath with Xforms i cannot use anything from the InfoPath stuff.. :)And i only have the schema as a starting point. Any oppinions of how could i do that?
  Im looking forward for your answer.

I've spent a lot of time using Infopath and Xforms together. I don't think 
this is a good way to work. Infopath, for example, doesn't produce text 
only xml and so some of the xml (rich text) produced by Infopath would not 
be readable.

I think it would be better, if possible, to re-write the schema to 
standards rather than use Infopath's schema. Not sure if that helps! 
Infopath uses a lot of rich text boxes which I don't think will translate 
to xforms, will they?
