XML Import Example w/ Subtasks

I'm trying to understand XML uploads and am having difficulty with subtasks. I'm looking for a snippet of example XML that will upload a single task and two subtasks of that task so that I can get the gist of how that's done. If anyone has such a sample, I'd love to see it.

The kicker for me seems to be the "id" and "parent" fields. Both appear to be unique 6-digit fields (when you look at a downloaded XML file). So I'm having trouble understanding how you'd create an XML file that imported a task and its subtasks if you don't know the "id" of the parent at the time of upload to put in the children under the "parent" field.

Short verison: I just need an example XML that will import three tasks ... "Parent", "Child 1", and "Child 2"

Much appreciated in advance.

You can use our xml export file as a template. Just use any ID number that you want as long as it is unique to the xml file that you are uploading.
