[REBOL] Re: XML DOM parser for REBOL?

Hi Premshree, Sunanda, I'm interested in knowing what you would be using a DOM-based XML parser with Rebol for. I really can't see why xml would be necessary, when Rebol parsing and block/series scripting is an easier data transfer scheme (if Rebol was used as a networked messaging language at large.) But... XML/HTML is the simplest way to quickly describe and receive/share data with the rest of the NET within the browser world. If Rebol thinks it can replace e-mail and HTML, then it's got to get rid of the E-Mailer and the browser. I really don't see that ever happening. I would like to know how some would use a DOM parser with Rebol and XML. I personally hope to use it to get rid of any xml having to be piped over the web to be interpreted by the browser. I Can,t share this right now, but Rebol script would be large and in charge by everyone that does this. Why i believe we need a quick-parser, a browser plug-in and a DOM-based XML parser ? So we can completely control any browser, its contents, HTML, CSS, password protection, encryption, serializing, ziping, objects, and its' transfer protocal so people won't have to buy and learn how to use a boat load of software. So Rebol would be seen as a reasonable choice to message web-site data across the net. I call it, WMD... WYSIWYG Messaged Data
