The paper is out-of-date, so it's worse than useless: you'll waste your
time figuring out that it's wrong, and you still won't know how to do

There's not one single example anywhere that just shows you how to read
or write a damned XML file. HaXml is what prompted me to start this page
(bad language warning, if it ain't obvious):


If there were anything approaching a physical manifestation of HaXml, I
would've strangled it.
