there was a thread about xml parsing, one month ago.
well, i don't know much about xml, except what it looks like;
but i know about that interesting parsing problem behind it.
maybe Lev Walkin has fixed that in HXML. at least he wrote this patch...

sometimes i think, i should write a paper about it. but then... naah, i'm like haskell: non-strict.
