Hi, what's the big problem about it? You parse the XML into a stream of
tags and content. Than build a block with tag-words used as set-words of
an object, and the content (plain append should do the job) and than use
this block as prototype for a new object.
But you should think about using an object at all. I would use a block of
name/value pairs. Much easier to handle. Converting such a block back to
XML is easy. Yes, I know I shouldn't talk only about how to do it but do
it... but other things on my todo-list. Robert
