When given 

a) an XML Schema document S, and 
b) an XML document plus an element E therein (e.g., by an XPath expression),

does anybody know an algorithm to determine the complex type of E as defined
by S? Or, if E does not have an according complex type, to determine the
complex type of the "nearest" ancestor of E that has an according complex type?

Kind Regards,
Martin Bernauer
