Dear Charles,

If others haven't already told you, don't bother reinventing
the wheel.  There are already literally dozens of XML parsers
now available for a variety of languages and platforms.
Do you require a validating or non-validating parser?

As far as cross-platform parsers go, there are the many Java-based
parsers.  I have written a couple of parsers for the Tcl scripting
language (itself a cross-platform environment) which many different
people are using in many ways.

Firstly, there's TclExpat - a wrapper for James Clark's expat
XML parser.  Also there's TclXML, a XML parser written entirely
in Tcl - slow, but some people seem to like it %-}  Both of these
are Open Source and may be (and are) used in commercial apps.

Hope that helps,
Steve Ball
