It's plausible - though not especially bright - in SAX processing. Using the NamespaceSupport class can avoid most of the namespace mayhem, but not everyone knows to do that or does so. Grabbing nodes out of the middle of a DOM tree could have similar consequences, but at least the tree is there for inspection. I can imagine scenarios where an application would grab text out of the middle of an XML document based on some indexing scheme, but I'd hope it was unlikely. -- Simon St.Laurent Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets Errors, errors, all fall down! http://simonstl.com
