- Each state has many life insurance sales people, and each region (North, South, East, West) of the state has one regional head salesperson. A salesperson can only sell in one region and can only have one head salesperson he/she is working under. Create a schema to describe this relationship. Create an XML document and populate it with data for two states. Make sure the XML document is well formed and valid. Each state should have data for at least two regions, and each region should have at least three salesman, including the region head. Each salesperson should be uniquely identified by a number. Each state shoud be uniquely identified by its two letter abbreviation. Create an XSL stylesheet to display this data, with a separate table for each state. If the salesperson is a regional head, it should say so. Create an entity named doublespace in the stylesheet that is the equivalent to two carriage returns. Use the new entity to create two blank lines between the two tables.
