Is there any way to sort an xml document so that it conforms to a given schema? ( assuming it is correct and has all the relevant nodes).

I am getting a random stream of data that I am using to build an xml document. It is being built correctly now, but I need to actually "order" the data because the input stream is not necessarily in the correct order.
Needs to end up being

The one way I figure to do it is to actually insert the nodes into the appropriate linked list in the correct order as I build the DOM model in memory.

My brain hurts, I know I am not going to explain this well.

Basically, I need the functionality of xmlNewChild, but rather than inserting the new node at the END of the parent children list, I need to insert it in a specific spot.

 wrong idea, xmlNewChild *create* a node, you want to *move* it.
Walk the Invoice children list and use xmlAddNextSibling()
list by manually changing prev, current, and potentially the parent->last pointer (as xmlNewChild does).

 that's another way, but this can be done cleanly with the API.
Walking the list reads the structure, but you use the API to change it.
