You haven't given us a lot to go
on, particularly as to what programming skills you have or don't have.
In general terms you want to parse your tab-delimited documents so
that you create XML documents that are well-formed.
documents would be of this general form:
<Word>Text to first tab</Word>
<Word>Text to third tab</Word>
You need to create the document
element that I have called <WordAndDef> above to ensure that the XML you
create is well-formed.
Assuming that you are able to create two XML
documents which are well-formed, then you could use XSLT to query them. But
you may not know enough about XSLT to know where to begin.
make any sense?
DARE: Andrew, why
would you suggest using XSLT for querying instead just XPath?
Especially since he can store the documents in an XML aware DB.
