Of course, that is only one way to use XML.  That could be written in a fashion 
somewhat easier on the eyes if your schema is designed for it:

                        <element value="1"/>
                        <element value="2"/>
                        <element value="3"/>
                        <element value="4"/>
                                <element value="5"/>
                                <element value="6"/>
