Re: xml help!!!
what sort of schedule? TV radio, school time table?
a common format would be (and this isn't sarcasm) a format that could be common to all tasks.
a example of this would be this. -this is just off the top of my head and could be wrong
<element id="1" start_type="static" start="7.30" duration="30">Sport</element>
<element id="2"start_type="dynamic" start="1" duration="30">Soap</element>
You see task one is static, it definitly starts at one time, whilst task twos start time is dynamic, it hapens after thask one is finished, this allows the sport to run into extra time (see what I mean)...
that example might be a bit complex for a simple data mining excercise...
