Hi Michael and all,
I was able to do the checking on numbers, boolean and the rest I treated as string. Like,

<xsl:template name="getType">
		<xsl:param name="curr"/>
		<xsl:param name="dType"/>
			<!-- Test if it is a Number -->
			<xsl:when test="number($curr) = number($curr)">
				<xsl:value-of select="concat($dType, 'xs:integer')"/>
			<!-- Test if it is a Boolean -->
			<xsl:when test="contains('/true/True/TRUE/false/FALSE/False/',concat('/',$curr,'/')) and string-length ($curr) &lt; 5">
				<xsl:value-of select="concat($dType, 'xs:boolean')"/>
				<!--<xsl:value-of select="boolean"/>-->
			<!-- It is a String -->
				<xsl:value-of select="concat($dType, 'xs:string')"/>
				<!--<xsl:value-of select="string"/>-->

I was wondering if there is a way to distinguish between decimals and date. 

I am generating this Schema and I have an output document (XSD). I like to consider this as a second input and check it with another incoming XML document. - means I have two input documents. Is there any way to handle something like document containers..? any suggestions on how such things would be done !? 

Thank you
