ahh - okay ;) 

I am using Davids suggestion and it seems to work reasonably well. In database 
terms it boils down to;
* normalize data
* keys (or candidate keys) become attributes
* repeating groups become elements
* remaining data items become either elements (if long), attributes (if 
"salient") or I flip a coin if no other rule holds ;)
