re industrial
| Okay, I'm largely convinced/reassured.
| Are we storing native XML in Oracle, or intermediately putting it into
| tables, then indexing,then running searches on that?

We offer two approaches for storage of XML in 8i:
  (1) If you're XML is being used as an Internet exchange format
      for E-Business information, then it makes the most sense
      to store the business information in the way that existing
      applications, data warehousing tools, and reporting tools
      can still leverage it, as well as in a way which enables
      querying the data efficiently from any point of view
      instead of through a fixed hierarchy imposed by a single
      XML document structure. In practice, your business
      data represents many virtual XML documents, depending
      on the business task at hand.

  (2) If you're storing XML marked-up legal proceedings or
      contracts, or dissertations, then you can mix and match
      our full-text searching and xml section searching over
      documents and document fragments stored in character

In future releases when we're living in 
an XML Schema aware environment with much more
datatype-rich schema information available, this
seamless XML-in and XML-out gets even smarter.
