> We have been trying to develop a generic tree viewer, where the data types

> <Type1>value
> 	<IndentedType1>value
> 		<IndentedType2>value
> 			<IndentedType3>valuea</IndentedType3>
> 			<IndentedType3>valueb</IndentedType3>
> 			<IndentedType3>valuec</IndentedType3>
> 		</IndentedType2>
> 	</IndentedType1>
> </Type1>
> Independent of the data type tag values, We would like the display to

> Type1:value
> -IndentedType1:value
> --IndentedType2:value
> ---IndentedType3:valuea
> ---IndentedType3:valueb
> ---IndentedType3:valuec
