Thanks -- Gavin's done some quality work there. But it has limitations. Though they may be inherent in REBOL being a "small systems" langauge. xml-object.r is Rebol block based so it is limited in the size it can handle -- the limitations are machine and opsys dependant but (on my machine) is only around a couple of hundred megabytes. xml-parse.r -- unless I'm reading too much into it being SAX-like, it gives me a one pass through the structure with no signnificant size limitations, but without my ever having the full picture or being able to vary the nagivations. It'd be great to have XML! as a native REBOL datatype with no significant memory limitations. And a REBOL-based XSLT processor. Then we could take over the world!! Sunanda.
