If your xsd schema (I assume you are using XSD rather than Relax NG or
some other schema language) is sufficiently simple you can just
interogate the schem document as an XMl input file with Xpath to query
the structure, however if the schema is complex with multiple
inclusions, substitution groups, etc, you will really need to see if the
schema validator you are using has an API to reveal the structure, some
do, but there is no standard API for that so it all depends on the system

Note however that your example is rather sstrange

XML attributes are inherently unordered and so a parser may not report
them in the order that they appear in the file, and a schema can not
specify any ordering for them.

> <xsl:match> element like
I assume you mean a match attribute of an xsl:template, since xsl
doesn't have a match element.
