Subject: RE: efficient XML (!= recursion)
Chaps, I know for an absolute fact that building a parser using freely available libraries is very simple, and does not even require a graduate student (the graduate student would slow down the process, in my experience ;p). Using Expat (or XML::Parser, built on Expat), a competent programmer can write a parser for all but the most gruelling XML in a day. I wrote a parser for my personal online picture database in 1 hour (http://www.mattmackenzie.com/) using XML::Parser. If I am wrong, you are suggesting that I am some sort of prodigy, and I can accept that :) , but I doubt it is the case. Bottom line: building a parser is trivial.
