The estimates above are close enough with one caveat: processing an element doesn't mean doing anything with the result. That is, given the namespace+name, I know how to get a value from an element, but I don't know where to put it -- that is, which object it is a property of. Except for the root element, that always depends on the parent. This would be true of all data binding solutions. -- Ron
