A software application I use produces XML documents with inaccurate
information. I need to change a few values within the document and output
the whole corrected document as XML.

Two kinds of changes are necessary, both in nearly the same place in the
document structure:

1. For each /AttributeProps/Datatype element with a value of DATE, I need to

2. For each  /AttributeProps/Order element, I need to take whatever the
value of Order is and then use that value to replace the value of 

So if Order has the value 1, PhysicalOrder must have the value 1 also. (This
may already be true in many cases, but I imagine there's no sense in testing
that they're equivalent. I would be just as easy to overwrite the value of
PhysicalOrder every time, wouldn't it?)

So, basically, I need to change two types of things and then copy over the
entire XML document with the changes in it. This would seem very simple, but
I'm at a loss.
