But the example xml-file from the matroska-site (http://www.matroska.org/technical/specs/tagging/tagexamples/example.xml) is said to be corrupt. After changing the first letters of the tags into capital letters, the tags <Tag> and <Tags> are accepted, but the others are not. I've tried the tags from the specification in all combination of upper/lower letters, but it wouldn't help.

Look at the example XML file that is in mkvmerge. It's the correct 
format. The example on the website is just to give an idea of the structure.

First, the shell extension use a tag <Simple>, which is not listed in the specification, but accepted from mkvmerge. Second, it use a tag <Name> (nested inside <Simple>), which is not accepted from mkvmerge (it says, that <Name> isn't a correct child of <Simple>).

Right now there's no such tool. But we will try to do one soon.
