Creation of XML documents

I am working on a project where we will use XML to exchange information
applications in different government agenices. We want to implement both
on-line access
between applications and asynchronous store & forward type of

I understand that there are 'lots' of good XML parsers (we have tried
some) out there and that SAX and DOM are
the prefered ways for applications to 'read' XML structures. I would
like to ask if there's anyone
that have the opposite problem i.e. for applications to create XML
documents on-the-fly. Of course
the developer could 'hand code' the XML structures which is error prone
and booring . I am looking
for something (API, lib) so that we could avoid this.

I would like to have a 'library' to which the application developer
could say 'using this DTD please
instantiate a XML document and help me to fill it in'.

Any solutions?
