Can you give a use-case for what this is required? Once in a while this XML thing shows up over and over. If the demand is that high, why hasn't anyone started to write one? If I use Rebol I only see usage for XML for import or export. This can be done with the on-board tools quite good. Why should I use XML stuff? Think about why no full-blown XML parser exists for Rebol... this is a much more interesting question ;-) Robert
