| Is there a reason you need to write your own parser?  There are at
| least five publicly available (James Clark, Microstar, DataChannel,
| Tim Bray, Microsoft).

My count has now passed 17, and another 2-3 packages with parsing
abilities. SAX[1] is heartily recommended. :-)

"These are, as I began, cumbersome ways / to kill a man. Simpler, direct, 
and much more neat / is to see that he is living somewhere in the middle /
of the twentieth century, and leave him there."     -- Edwin Brock
