comment Converting from ArcGIS TIN to LandXML?
Yes, the Data Interoperability Extension will read LandXML, but not write it. You'd need the upgrade to full FME to get writing ability (safe.com/solutions/for-applications/esri-arcgis/formats)

comment MapInfo Tab Files - Which feature types are contained?
I think an important question here is: why? Why do you need to do this? If we knew that, someone might have an alternative solution.

comment Unable to inspect GML file
Where is the template coming from in the XMLTemplater? That's where the schema definition should be included.

comment How can I reformat xml data with fme?
Having said that, I'm sure there must be a way to do this directly with the XML Reader/Transformers. I'll investigate.

comment how to manage xml fragments in fme
Our chief XML-ologist took a look, duplicated what you have above, and found no problem. So I guess you'll need to definitely send it in to the support team for further analysis.

comment FME - calculating distance to points along a line
I think we'd need to see a bit more of the source data to help (in particular I'm not clear on the difference between the vertices and the points). You could also send the workspace/data to Safe Support for us to look at (safe.com/supportrequest). Mark it FAO Mark Ireland and it'll be assigned to me.

Make sure you are using FME Workbench (and not just the FME Quick Translator)
