I'm trying to do this in C#. Here is a sample...

            XmlDocument xmldoc = new XmlDocument();
            xmldoc.Load("MyXml.xml");
            //while(pages) {add page tags}
            xmldoc.Save("MyXml.xml");



From this....

<documents>
      <pages>
      </pages>
</documents>


To this....

<documents>
      <pages>
        <page number="0">page0.TIF</page>
        <page number="1">page1.TIF</page>
      </pages>
</documents>

Very simple example:
            XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
            doc.Load("MyXml.xml");

            XmlNode root = doc.SelectSingleNode("//pages");

            for (int i = 0; i != 10; ++i)
            {
                XmlNode child = doc.CreateElement("page");

                XmlAttribute attr = doc.CreateAttribute("number");
                attr.Value = i.ToString();
                child.Attributes.Append(attr);

                child.InnerText = string.Format("page{0}.TIF", i);
                root.AppendChild(child);
            }

            doc.Save("MyXml.xml");
