Insert element into XML with compliance to a schema

    I have a new XML document parsed in as DOM. Then I have an element to insert
    according to the order spesified in a schema.

    For example:

    I have a XML:


    I need to insert "<book><chapter2>Chapter2></chapter2></book>". Accoding to
    schema, the <chapter2> must be after <chapter1> and before <chapter3> that
    is missing in this case.

    (if I know the element to be insert at a certain position, in this case the
    second, it's easy to do. However, generally the position is not known, only
    an order determined by the schema.)

    How can I generally solve this problem? Is there any way to read in the
    schema and perform the insertion according to it?
