unfortunately, the it department gives you one tool only to create the xml
file and that is an excel spread sheet (with macros) that will probably only
run on microsoft excel. however, they also give you the full schema and give
you other tools so you can write your own application to create the xml file
(in the developers portion of their web site). i have not tried this part
myself, but i see that there are several commercial offerings, typically with
web front ends, that allow you create (and file) the online return xml.
