Could you expand a little bit more on your requirements as its sounds quite
like a project I'll working on.

1. Who are you passing the tags on to, another part of the your application
2. How do you want to locate the tags.  eg. do you want the name tag within
an person ala XSL ?
3. What langugue etc are you looking.

Kind Regards,
