Umm, have you looked at expatpp?

As far as I can see, I've already done exactly what you want.

There's substantial working available as open source - the OOFILE
report-writer uses expatpp to parse saved report files which include
layouts, database schemae etc. This project would have been a damn sight
harder to debug without the sub-parsers.

See http://www.oofile.com.au/ for links to expatpp (including a copy of
expat) and the report writer.

This code has been validated on Mac and Windows personally and others have
used expatpp on Unix.
