Content And Structure (CAS) index for XML data is an important index type that has not been widely researched, even though its role is important especially in multi domain applications. Most existing researches in XML Queries Optimization focus on structure index alone. Few have utilized the rich semantic of XML data to support CAS index and querying. In this paper, we propose two indexes namely Structural index and Content index, whose construction utilizes XML data semantics and schema. These indexes contribute to a better CAS queries performance. The experiments prove that our method improves the performance of CAS queries by reducing the cost of CPU time and the total number of scanned elements compared to a standard method.
