[Mediawiki-l] Syntax for Importing XML

I'm trying to use Special:Import to create several pages at once. The catch is that these are brand-new pages that were not exported from another wiki. The XML syntax seems pretty straight forward, but I had a few questions.
Here is a snippet of the Exported XML from an existing page:
<title>Category:2.0 Feedback Survey</title>
<text xml:space="preserve">blah blah blah</text>
My question is when importing a brand-new page what should I put for the page id and what should I put for the revision id? Or if I leave these fields out, will MediaWiki create default values?
If it helps, the version of MediaWiki I'm importing into is 1.11.2.
