It would be simple enough to append logEntry elements to whatever.log and then, when you need to process it as a valid XML document, to process this: <!DOCTYPE myLog [ <!ELEMENT myLog (logEntry+)> <!-- declare logEntry, etc. --> <!ENTITY logfile SYSTEM "whatever.log"> ]> <myLog>&logfile;</myLog> I would consider this an obvious use of a basic XML feature (external general entities); is this what you meant by "XML hack"?
