Okay, this was how it looked to me last time I investigated: Perl, Python, PHP all use the same xml parser -- expat, a non-validating SAX parser. That, or they offer other non-validating native implementations. Java has JAXP, the interchangable parser, numerous validating parsers (both SAX and DOM), strong XML support from IBM, and more. So when I say "comparatively thin", I mean thin compared to Java. -jeff
