Yes, rebol's XML support is bad. Well, it is not bad, but apparently nonexistant, as we can't talk about support in the sense of implementing standard conformant parser ....

I just had very brief look into it. Man, all those XML related things look so complex :-( Some time ago, we held discussion on XML on Altme XML channel. There was few usefull links also, we discussed if we should go SAX or DOM way or choose some mixture. If you have a few spare minutes to read it briefly, you can do so here, maybe you have good experience to give us some comments/suggestions: beware - read from the bottom :-) thanks a lot, -pekr-
