1) Your best bet is to use a standard API. The standard object-oriented
API is the DOM (http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-DOM-Level-1/). The standard
event-driven API is SAX (http://www.megginson.com/SAX/index.html).
2) Why do you want to write a parser? Why not just use an existing parser?
3) majordomo at ic.ac.uk is the administrative address for XML-DEV. That is,
it is used to subscribe and unsubscribe to the mailing list. To send
messages to the XML-DEV mailing list, use xml-dev at ic.ac.uk, not
majordomo at ic.ac.uk.
4) Generally, you should post questions to only one mailing list. For
questions like this, xml-dev (xml-dev at ic.ac.uk) is probably your best bet,
since it is for developers.
