This is the relevant part of what I'm using in my config file for

DefaultContents XML2
MetaNames title description swishdocpath
PropertyNames title date
UndefinedXMLAttributes ignore
PropertyNamesMaxLength 300 swishdescription
PropertyNameAlias swishdescription description

Where I'm indexing files which look like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
